N.C. Sen. Harry Brown also attended to welcome the new memorial. The dedication carried additional weight for Brown, who is an Eagle Scout and who often visited his aunt in Sneads Ferry as a child.

“I’ve done a lot of ceremonies with Eagle Scouts in the past several years, but I can tell you that this monument Joseph has put together is probably the best one I’ve ever seen,” Brown said. “This is something that will be here forever, hopefully. It says a lot about Sneads Ferry’s heritage and really shows the heart of this community.”
