Monday, May 25, 2020 - Following the Parade At Ferncliff Cemetery
Memorial Day Civil War Event
This project is a collaboration between the Ferncliff Cemetery Board and Gammon House, Inc.
Join us on Memorial Day, May 25th, immediately following the Memorial Day Parade at Ferncliff Cemetery’s Civil War Veteran’s Mound. We will dedicate a monument to the 139 United States Colored Troops buried in Ferncliff Cemetery for their service in the Civil War! These veterans fought not only for their own personal freedom but also to end slavery and pave the way for all African-Americans to gain full citizenship.
