Excavated troops on way to final rest

Some of the first U.S. troops ever buried in Tucson are heading to their final rest this weekend, two years after their remains were unearthed to make way for a Downtown construction project.
The bones of nearly 60 soldiers from the Civil and Indian war eras will be blessed this morning at a local cemetery as their coffins are loaded onto cargo trucks for a 75-mile journey to a veterans cemetery in Sierra Vista.

    I was there this week end. I attended the blessing at Tucson. Was interviewed by a reporter , joined the motorcade to Sierra Vista, was asked to read the names of the California Column soldiers on Friday night, and attended the services on Saturday. It was an awesome cermenony I am so glad a group of us drove from California to attend.
