Civil War-style funeral held for re-enactor

Tennessee Civil War re-enactor Colonel T. Michael Cheaves has been laid to rest with a 21-gun salute as family, friends, and fellow re-enactors dressed in period costumes paid their last respects. Since he was a retired detective from the Knox County Sheriff’s Department, he received another 21-gun salute. Cheaves was known for refurbishing saddles and training horses to prepare them for the sights and sounds of battle during events. • Article
