By 1912, Adair Civil War vets were passing away
About: Scenic Taylor Co., KY, CFA Cemetery Row on row
Candice Compton Robertson's "Row on Row" photograph of the Confederate grave markers at Tebbs Bend brought to mind the following, from a time when past differences could be forgiven and forgotten, as evinced by the closing sentence. This appeared in the February 21, 1912 Adair County News:
The ex-Federal soldiers of Adair County, and at one time there were quite a number, are fast passing into the other world. Last week we noticed eight or ten, at different times, on the Square, not one of them less than seventy-one years old...Of the ex-Confederate soldiers who went out from Adair county, only five are living. It is our wish that those who wore the blue and those who donned the gray may yet be permitted to live happily many more days.
