Memorial Day Military Timeline Event (TENTATIVE)

Event Description

Following the American Civil War, a “Decoration Day” began in communities across America remembering soldiers who gave the ultimate sacrifice. Senator John A. Logan, a former Union officer on staff with Major General William T. Sherman, was instrumental in making this a formal national day honoring our fallen soldiers, which became Memorial Day. We will focus on women’s contributions in the military through the ages.  Join military living historians representing the American soldier of all time periods throughout our nation’s history. Program is Saturday 10am-4pm

Cost: $5.00 for adults and $3.00 for children ages 3-16.  Under 3 and all active or retired military personnel are FREE
