Confederate fighters get Delaware monument
The unveiling will be at noon on the grounds of the Nutter B. Marvel Museum on South Bedford Street, with ceremonies at the monument at 1 p.m.
The ceremonies will include speeches, a 21-gun salute, cannon salutes, and re-enactors will walk the grounds afterward.
"We've invited quite a few people. We're expecting close to 200," said Middletown resident Wayne Yarnall, publicity co-chair for the Seaford-based Delaware Grays Camp 2068 of the Sons of Confederate Veterans.
