By Michael Beadle
A corner of Downtown Waynesville went back in time this past weekend for a ceremony and commemoration of Confederate veterans.
On Saturday, May 10, the state’s Confederate Memorial Day, members of the 22nd North Carolina Company B encamped on the courthouse lawn, held military exercises in uniform and gave a 21-gun salute during a wreath-laying ceremony at the Haywood County Courthouse monument for Confederate veterans.
