GREEN, Richard W., Co. A, Lewis’ Battalion, Alabama Cavalry. (This marker was found by the landowner leaning against a huge old water oak and obscured by brush. Appeared to have been like that for many years. Members of SCV Camp 1748 had a small ceremony to re-set the stone near the tree and erected a metal fence around it to keep the livestock off of it. The first flag placed by the grave was eaten by a horse.
