Even The Threat of Hanna Did Not Stop Descendants and Supporters from Honoring Those Who Suffered At Pt. Lookout.
Confederate Memorial Park Has Been Dedicated.

There is a sweet, sequestered spot, where peace and silence reign,
a fair God's acre is the lot, where sleep the Southern slain ... Alice Graham

The Descendants of Pt. Lookout Organization's Project
We purchased over three acres of land next to the Pt. Lookout Confederate Cemetery in St. Mary's County, Pt. Lookout, MD. The purpose of Confederate Memorial Park, Inc. is to honor the sacrifices of the POWs (military & civilian of all races, men/women/children) who were imprisoned and who died at Pt. Lookout, MD 1863-1865.
There were over 52,000 imprisoned in Pt. Lookout. Think of all the descendants of these POWs throughout the United States. Hopefully, eventually, all of them will visit the memorial that will be erected to their family members. CMP will be a place where people can visit to learn of unedited, non revised, no-compromise history. It will be a serene, reverent place to visit that teaches and honors the sacrifices of those American POW Veterans, who died in captivity serving their country.
