ArkLaTex -

On March 23 2014, 15 Scouts from Troop 48 in Blanchard, Louisiana conducted their annual 14 mile hike in the Vicksburg National Military Park, located in Vicksburg, Mississippi.

While on the hike, the Scouts performed a ceremony honoring soldiers who fought in the American Civil War for the states of Louisiana and Massachusetts. There are three members in the troop who are from Boston, which is why the ceremony also honored soldiers from Massachusetts.

During the closing of the park, on March 23 2014, the troop was requested by the National Park Service Park Ranger to lower the United States Flag which flies over the park.
