Zachariah C Pearson

On Sunday August 29 the first presentation of the ECMOH took place , this was at the Old Spring bank cemetery in Hull, the medal was recieved by the surviving grand daughter of zachariah c pearson , a man who was a blockade builder and owner and whose support of the South cost him 880,000, which in todays money is 61,800,000 or approx $100,000,000 !
Neville and myself where in attendance with absences from Peter Rossi ( injury ) and Chris and Michael Dowling ( prior commitment).
Almost 80 relatives of zachariah were present and the medal presentation was well recieved , especially as it was the final part in a large scale celebration in a weekend to commemorate him.
