Johnson Island Prison

A couple of weeks ago I did some volunteer work cleaning up the area where Johnson Island Prison was. I took along with me enough Confederate Battle flags for each of the marked graves and after I was done with the clean up, I visited the cemetery and had the honor to put a flag on each grave there.

There were already flags on the graves of men from Mississippi and I was wondering if anyone knew who put them there.
