Forsyth County’s Confederate heritage was honored by members of the Col. Hiram Parks Bell Chapter 2641 United Daughters of the Confederacy. On Saturday, members of the organization held a Confederate Memorial Day service in conjunction with the local Sons of Confederate Veterans chapter at Zion Hill Baptist Church in north Forsyth. Several members of the organization dressed in period Civil War-era costumes for the annual roll call event of 10 former Confederate soldiers who are buried in the church’s cemetery.
