On Monday, May 29, at 11:00 am, Shiloh National Military Park will host its annual Memorial Day observance ceremony in the Shiloh National Cemetery. This time-honored service will include music, patriotic salutes, and the laying of a wreath on the grave of an unknown soldier.

“Memorial Day is a day for remembering all the people who have died while serving in our country's armed forces,” said Acting Superintendent Stacy Allen. Originally known as Decoration Day, it began after the Civil War to commemorate the soldiers who died in the war. 

The service and all park programs are free and open to the public. Everyone is invited to bring lawn chairs and blankets and remember our fallen service personnel.
