The speaker at dedication service for the Mississippi Confederate Monument was Major General Harold Cross (ret.), former Adjutant General of the Mississippi Army and Air National Guard. His remarks were a heartfelt and fitting tribute to the many brave Confederate men who left home and hearth and gave their last full measure while fighting on Shiloh's hallowed battleground.
