Confederate Park Postcard and Crockett's Rangers

This postcard of Confederate Park features a bench that had been donated by Crockett's Rangers, Company H, 154th Senior Regiment Tennessee Volunteers.  The 154th pre-dated the Civil War.  When units began forming for the Civil War the 154th wanted to retain their number, hence they were the 154th Senior Regiment.  The 154th was considered "elite" with many of societies creme de la creme among its ranks.
