The Polk SCV Camp of Smyrna and St. Hilda’s Church will conduct two memorials for Bishop-General Leonidas Polk on Saturday, June 19, 2010. The first service will be held at Pine Mountain at 10:00 a.m. The second service will be at St. Hilda’s Church at 6:00 p.m. Go to www.sthildasacc.org for directions to Pine Mountain and the Church.
The services commemorate the bishop’s life-long dedication to Christ and the church, as well as his sacrifice for our country. As a Confederate corps commander, General Polk fell in battle at Pine Mountain, Georgia on June 14, 1864.
All are encouraged to join the Polk Camp and St. Hilda’s Church in honoring this brave Christian soldier. Immediately after the 6:00 p.m. service, St. Hilda’s will host a reception. Donations welcome! Period dress encouraged.
