A Meaningful Dedication

A ceremony is scheduled for Friday, November 10 at 11 a.m. at Newburg Union Cemetery.

It's a chance to remember our Civil War Veterans.

It's an effort to ensure that they are not forgotten. The goal is to place a monument at each of the cemeteries where Civil War Veterans are buried. 

Many of the headstones or grave markers are deteriorating, or are no longer legible. 

A short dedication ceremony is planned, which will include the Color Guard, 21-gun salute and music by the St. John's Lutheran Church and School. 

Everyone is welcome to attend.

Join us in remembering the service of Ezra Warren, John Heiser, John McDonald, Johann Milkee, Robert Salter, Joseph Schaub, Daniel Steuerwald and Henry Trautsch.
