The Commander of the Sons of Confederate Veterans’ Seaborn Jones Cotten Camp 2303 Eureka Springs has for several years placed permanent Confederate flags on the graves of Confederate Veterans in Eureka Springs Cemetery without permission. The city cemetery commission this winter has set certain limits, but a city councilman, with concerned residents, aim to pass a strict rule.
