Dedication of 1812 Bicentennial Marker

On Saturday, 16 June 2012, we were witnesses to the dedication of the 1812 Bicentennial Marker on the Natchez Trace Parkway.  This was sponsored by the Tennessee State Society of the United States Daughters of 1812 who raised the funds.  The marker is dedicated to all of the soldiers buried along the Old Natchez Trace during the War of 1812.

The marker, as is fitting, is placed near a section of the original Natchez Trace.
