The Original African-American Cemetery of Lexington

The Old Virginia Blog has the info and donation request for a historical highway marker which commemorates the original African-American cemetery of Lexington.

The marker was recently installed by VDOT and is located on the Rt. 11 (South) bypass, just south of the bridge which passes over Rt. 60 in Lexington, Virginia.
The local Stonewall Brigade Camp #1296 of the Sons of Confederate Veterans has raised $760 toward this effort. This was done solely through private donations. No local government funds or tax dollars were received for this marker. The total cost of the marker is $1350 leaving a deficit of $590.
The purpose of this post is to ask readers, organizations, and/or businesses who are interested in assisting with this worthy project to contribute funds toward the remaining balance. Any amount is welcome and appreciated. Those wishing to give through the Stonewall Brigade SCV camp may make the check payable to: “Stonewall Brigade Camp #1296/SCV”. The Sons of Confederate Veterans is a 501(c)3 charitable organization and contributions are tax deductible as allowed by law.

Help them out if you can.
