Martyrs of the Race-the true meaning of Memorial Day – thanks to David W. Blight and Michael Moore @MMFlint

‎”After the Confederate evacuation of Charleston black workmen went to the site, reburied the Union dead (imprisoned at the racecourse) properly, and whitewashed a high fence around and built an archway..on which they inscribed the words, “Martyrs of the Race Course.”
– a parade of 10,000 – NYTribune: “a procession of friends and mourners as South Carolina and the United States never saw before.”
