Williamson County Sons of Confederate Veterans chapter to stand on Georgetown Square daily through April

Published on April 19, 2017 under CommunityImpact

This story was updated at 2:29 p.m April 19 to include comments from Susan Wukasch. Ret. Col. Shelby K. Little stood adorned with the full attire of a Texas Confederate Cavalryman as “The Yellow Rose of Texas” played Tuesday afternoon on a boom box hidden behind the Confederate Civil War statue in front of the Williamson County Courthouse. “This is not a monument to the Confederacy. This is a monument to the soldiers in our families who died,” Little said. “It’s worth remembering the tragedies of losing family just as it is worth remembering that slavery happened so it doesn’t happen again.”
