Video: Pvt. Hugh McLaughlin (1835-1906)
A mini documentary I produced today. Was invited to record an honorary ceremony and headstone dedication for Pvt. Hugh McLaughlin (b.1835-d.1906). He was buried in Greenwood Memorial Terrace in 1906 but his grave was unmarked and his Civil War service was unknown. Local Civil War history enthusiasts, re-enactors, and others took part in a graveside ceremony to honor Hugh McLaughlin. In attendance were a granddaughter, great granddaughter, great great granddaughter and other extended family members. Photographed using a Canon XH A1 and AT-835b shotgun directional mic. I also shot some 3D any may edit that at a later date.
Local news story on the ceremony is here and background on how the grave was discovered and the many people who researched the genealogy, the history and worked to obtain a new headstone.
