Cadets Pay Respect to Lt. Henry O. Flipper
Eight cadets and two professors from the U.S. Military Academy at West Point paid their respects to Henry O. Flipper, West Point's first African-American graduate, at Thomasville’s historic Flipper Cemetery on Wednesday, May 25th. Lt. Flipper graduated from West Point in 1877. The cadets paid their respects during a ceremonial program that included playing Taps and rendering the appropriate military salute. City of Thomasville staff were on hand to provide information about Lt. Flipper and to provide a tour of the cemetery that highlighted cemetery restoration. Since 2008, the cemetery has undergone extensive restoration of headstones and markers. Ground penetrating radar was used to document 147 marked burials and 722 unmarked burials.
