Valerie took this photo at Table Rock's Civil War statue in May 2017. The occasion was the delivery of the burial flag of William McNeal, a Civil War soldier from Table Rock who had died in the war. A tombstone had been secured and the Army was providing funeral honors, with the flag delivered by an Army sergeant prior to the funeral. In the picture are the Army sergeant, the Eagle scout from Humboldt who accepted it on behalf of McNeal's descendants, his scoutmaster Roxie Snethen, and Sharla Cerra and Gregg Clement, officers of the Table Rock Historical Society.
