Memorial Day Military Timeline Event

Event Description

Our annual Memorial Day event.  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 throughtout our nation's history.  A special traveling exhibit entitled "Profiles of Honor" will be on site for both days.

 

Program runs Saturday 10:00 am to 4:00 pm and Sunday 10:00 am to 3:00 pm
