Greetings Gentleman and Ladies,
Patricia Buck, President of the Point Lookout POW Descendants Organization has put a call out to Confederate Cavalry for their 2008 Pilgrimage, plpow.com/Pilgrimage_2008.htm taking place September 6th.
Yes, Memorial Day weekend. I am currently working to see if I can gather a few of my unit members to accompany me, as I am a Descendant and want to attend.
I have the Registration for participants in the Living History area and while the deadline has expired, she has offered to waive that reg deadline.
Should you be interested, please contact her directly, Patricia Buck, email@example.com
The flag that was raised was the one used from 1956 to 2001. Not very civil war-ish. Why not use the correct one from the war period, instead of the battle flag prominent one from almost 100 years after the war?

Mr. Todd, your suggestion is to use the Modern Day Georgia Flag when the Confederate Memorial Park is to honor those who fought and died for Georgia during the Civil War, 1861 to 1865. Your flag does not depict the most appropriate flag to fly.
However, using Mark's suggestioned website, btw Mark - GREAT SITE, here is what should be flying. This is the UNOFFICIAL Georgia State Flag Before 1879.

That will probably be a tough one to find. You may run into the same issue with Mississippi's and Maryland's.
Maryland also didn't have an "official" state flag. Confederate Marylanders during the war carried the Crossland flag...
The Calvert colors were adopted as part of the state seal and became popular as flags and banners before the war. Marylanders on the Federal side were known to carry the Calvert flag (the gold and black checkered area).
