Monocacy National Battlefield, May 25-27, 2013

Over the Memorial Day weekend, Monocacy National Battlefield will offer public programs and host a memorial flag display in honor of those soldiers who fell during the Battle of Monocacy.

Park rangers will present programs on the history of Memorial Day on Saturday, May 25 and Sunday, May 26 at 1:00 p.m. and 3:00 p.m. On Memorial Day, May 27 at 3:00 p.m. the park will participate in the National Moment of Remembrance. Park staff and visitors will pause for one minute of silence followed by the playing of echo taps to pay tribute to the men and women who have died in service to our country.

In preparation for the event, the park is seeking volunteers to help place 2,200 Union and Confederate flags. All interested parties should meet at the park visitor center at 8:45 a.m. the morning of Saturday, May 25. The visitor center is located at 5201 Urbana Pike, Frederick, MD 21704.
