Memorial Day Military Timeline Event


  • Add to Trip [+]

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. Join military living historians representing the American soldier of all time periods throughout our nation’s history. A Special traveling exhibit entitled “Profiles of Honor” will be on site for both days. Program is Saturday 10am-4pm, and Sunday 10am-3pm.
