Historic Mt. Olivet cemetery in Pineville, Louisiana will reenact the burial of Major Mercer Canfield. Killed at the Battle of Mansfield, Louisiana.

Terri Febuary was asked to write two monologues to be performed at the cemetery.

The 16th Governor of Louisiana, Thomas Overton Moore, the Secessionist Governor 1860-1864 was buried in the historic cemetery.

Major Mercer Canfield, will be the soldier who is eulogized at the cemetery with the reenacting of a traditional military funeral of that era.

These monologues are a part of the Sesquicentennial Civil War remembrance.
