Long Description:


First Decoration, or Memorial Day, was observed in Kingston in late
April of 1865, and has been a continuous observance here since
that day, the only such record held by any community in this
Nation. The first Memorial, or Decoration Day, was observed while
Federals still occupied this town, flowers being placed on both
Confederate and Federal graves that day. Much credit is due the
Dardens and other patriotic citizens of this town for their untiring
efforts to keep alive memories of the gallant Confederates --
greatest fighting men of all time.
