Civil War Roundtable: Memorial Day morning walk through Greenwood Cemetery

May 27 @ 9:00 am

memorial day grave marking honoring union and confederate veterans, greenwood cemetery

On Memorial Day, May 27, at 9:00 please join us in Greenwood Cemetery, 1526 National Road, to mark with flowers the graves of the Civil War veterans who are interred there.

Approximately 200 Civil War veterans have their final resting place in Greenwood Cemetery. Ranging from volunteers in the three-month service at the beginning of the conflict to those who served throughout the war, most of those buried in Greenwood survived their wartime experiences. The majority fought for the Union, but quite a few were Confederate soldiers. Some were wounded; some served time as prisoners of war; some were Wheeling natives; others settled here only after the war. Some lived out their lives in relative obscurity, while others became prominent citizens.

Later in the day, the Soldier and Sailors Civil War monument, relocated from Wheeling Park to the grounds of West Virginia Independence Hall, 1528 Market Street, will be re-dedicated in a ceremony at 1:00.
