Each December Andersonville National Historic Site participates in the national Wreaths Across America program to remember and honor our military veterans. Sponsored wreaths will be laid on gravesites in National Cemeteries across the country, including Andersonville National Cemetery, on the second Saturday of December. The next Wreaths Across America ceremony is scheduled for Saturday December 13, 2014.

If you, your family, organization, or business is interested in sponsoring a 20" Frasier Fir wreath with a red velveteen bow, you can learn more about the program and sponsor wreaths online at www.wreathsacrossamerica.org.

Wreaths provided through the Wreaths Across America are placed on sponsored grave locations, with the bulk of them placed in older sections of the cemetery. In 2011 and 2012, Section A received wreaths; in 2013 wreaths were placed in Section B.
