The Appomattox United Daughters of the Confederacy presented the Iron Cross of Honor to Corporal Richard C. Price, on Saturday November 11, 2006 at the Madisonville Presbyterian Church, Madisonville, Virginia. Corporal  Price was in the 1st Virginia Infantry, Co. C.  Corporal Price served the Confederacy from January 1863 until July 1865.
 
He was born in rural Charlotte County, Virginia on September 7, 1837 to Nathaniel Daniel Price and Mecca Harvey Price. After the war Richard returned to the Charlotte County and married Euthretia Early of Bedford, Virginia. Richard and Euthretia had four children - William H. Price, Charles Early Price, and twin girls, Estelle Price and Susie Price. Richard Price attended the 50th Reunion at Gettysburg.  Mr. Price died in March 1925.  Mr. Price is the Great Grandfather of Appomattox Chapter President, Carol Adams Williams.
 
The Iron Cross of Honor is a Confederate grave marker patterned after the Southern Cross of Honor Medal. The marker is in the shape of a cross and is black in color. On the front of the marker are the dates 1861-1865, which represents the beginning and the end of the war. Also on the front are the words "DEO VINDICI" which is Latin for "Vindicated by God". On the back are the letters CSA, meaning Confederate States of America, along with the battle flag. This marker is a way to give the families of the deceased soldiers of the Confederacy in the War Between the States, a medal to honor their service in the war. Every visitor to the grave will remember this Confederate hero was honored by the United Daughters of the Confederacy.
 
Members of the Appomattox Courthouse Rangers and Appomattox Children of the Confederacy also participated in the program.
