People have come from all over the world to pay tribute at the wooded site where the Skynyrd plane fell from the sky, but history needs to be clear about this place. Help us create a lasting memorial to be situated near the crash site. This historical marker (a sample provided in the picture below) will include photographs and a narrative of the accident, the heroics of rescuers and medical personnel who helped prevent additional loss of life, and the lasting legacy of the band.
Project costs are as follows: $10,000 for the crash site marker; $10,000 for an additional marker on the campus of the hospital where the survivors were taken, to recognize the caregivers; and remaining proceeds for a contingency fund to be used for directional marking along the roads leading to the location of the crash site marker, and other related long term expenses.
All those who donate will be invited to the dedication ceremony for this historical marker, to be held on October 20, 2019.
