Memorial Day Ceremonies

The Engineers were proud to be a part of these two ceremonies this past weekend to celebrate Memorial Day.  Memorial Day is the day when we honor those heroic individuals who gave their lives for their country.  

The first event was on Saturday in Arcade.  The railroad brought Generals Grant and Lee, President Lincoln, infantry from both sides and Union artillery to the Curriers Station to pay tribute to the dead from both Union and Confederate armies.

The second event of Sunday was a Memorial Service at Forest Lawn Cemetery by the Sons and Daughters of Union Veterans of the Civil War.  This took place in the Civil War section of the cemetery at the GAR Monument, Section 14.
