Glenn Fields of the Sons of Confederate Veterans unveils a portrait of Civil War soldier William Gray Hollowell during a Confederate Memorial Day Service at Willowdale Cemetery on Sunday. Hollowell was a private in the Goldsboro Rifles who enlisted at age 21. He was wounded at the Battle of Bristoe Station, Va., in the fall of 1863 and had his left leg amputated. The nation is observing the 150th anniversary of the war. A photography exhibit made available by the state Department of Cultural Resources is on display at the Wayne County Public Library through June 28.
