Honoring Our Civil War Heroes

We re very pleased to announce that Co. A.  49th IA Veteran Volunteer Infantry will be joining our 2010 Wreaths Across America Ceremony.

Check out their website at www.iowavalor.com.  The 49th Iowa is the Nation’s Most Decorated Civil War Honor Guard Unit.  They are the Governor of Iowa’s personal Honor Guard; and, have won the Nation Meritorious Unit Citation from the Sons of veterans Reserve for 2010, for a start.
 
The 49th IA will be paying special honor to the fallen Civil War Veterans laid to rest at Oakland Cemetery.    They also will present and retire the colors to the sounds of their own Regimental bagpiper and Highland Drummer beating the slow cadence march.

We are very honored and humbled to have this outstanding organization join our ceremony as we usher the 150th Anniversary of the beginning of the Civil War.
