S05: E15: Creating the Memorial for the USCT of Natchez, MS w/Deborah Fountain

Deborah Fountain is the Lead Genealogist and the History and Research Subcommittee Chairperson on the Natchez USCT Monument Committee.

We talked about the steps taken to get these USCT Army and Navy troops honored with a memorial, her family’s connection to this history, and ways you can research whether your ancestors fought with the USCT in Natchez.

Deborah also discussed the steps that were taken to be a part of something as simple as the Wreaths Across America ceremony. This is a ceremony that happens every Christmas where wreaths are placed on the graves of soldiers throughout the United States.
