Anderson Among 8 Counties Marking Confederate Memorial Day

Anderson County is one of eight remaining counties in South Carolina which still observers Confederate Memorial Day. S.C. made the day a state holiday in 2000.

The holiday, celebrated May 10, was started to honor the lives of those killed in the Civil War.

A survey of all 46 counties by the newspaper found that the other participating counties are: Allendale, Cherokee, Colleton, Dillon, Lexington, McCormick and Oconee. Of them, seven are predominantly white. Allendale County is the only one with a largely African American population.

Anderson County offices, along with most S.C. agencies will be closed for the day.
