At the cemetery walk, reenactors told the tales of historic persons including Pickney T. Wall, a nurse during the 1878 Yellow Fever epidemic; the Honorable Samuel Nash, a prominent Gallipolis lawyer who served in the Ohio Senate; Robert Duncan, Civil War soldier imprisoned in Andersonville Prison Camp; and so many more.
