COLUMBUS, Ga. -

The Historic Linwood Foundation remembered General Henry Benning at a ceremony Saturday morning. General Benning, Ft. Benning's namesake, was a prominent figure in the Columbus community for decades.

His living relatives presented a wreath at his grave site during the ceremony. One relative spoke about General Benning's legacy in Columbus.

"To hear the US Army be here to honor him is a great symbol of how we've honored our past and we've moved forward and will continue to move forward so it's a lot of fun," says Jack Schley.

About 50 people attended the ceremony Saturday.
