Confederate veterans to clean up cemetery

The Col. Charles Jones Colcock Camp No. 2100 of the Sons of Confederate Veterans will hold a cleanup of the former Grace Episcopal Cemetery at 9:30 a.m. Saturday. The cemetery, which is near Okatie, holds the remains of at least three Confederate veterans and several notable South Carolinians. Several camps of the Sons of Confederate Veterans are working to identify and preserve the graves of Confederate veterans and their cemeteries across the state. The public is welcome to help with the cleanup. No metal detectors are allowed.
