For The Tuscumbian
By Mary Carton
Up a long flight of stairs to the American Legion Colbert County Memorial Post No. 31 on Main Street in Tuscumbia are two walls filled with pictures of Colbert Countians who died in the service of our country. A few are remembered only by a faded newspaper clipping, still awaiting a photo donation by family.
Most in the Shoals area are not familiar with the wall unless they visit during the annual Memorial Day Program at the Courthouse.
Richard Sheridan graciously met me at the Hall one Saturday morning and we spent a little over two hours taking down each picture and taking a picture of each for this post.
A post to honor those who died defending our freedom.
