ABILENE, Texas -

The Sons of Confederate Veterans hosted a memorial service for a fallen soldier Saturday.

They honored Pvt. Robert Hilmon Hartline who died in 1914. They said Hartline, like so many others, was never properly laid to rest--some never even received a tombstone.

The dedication service was held at the Drummond Cemetary in View. The group hopes to hold future memorials for fallen soldiers.
