Civil War Veterans Remembered

A monument dedication will take place on Friday, November 10 at Newburg Union Cemetery.

It is scheduled to begin at 11 a.m.

It is an event to remember Civil War Veterans. Their 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 no longer legible. 

There will be a short dedication ceremony including the Color Guard, 21-gun salute and music from the St. John's Lutheran Church and School.

The event is open to the public.

The ceremony will remember the service of John Heiser, John McDonald, Johann Milkee, Robert Salter, Joseph Schaub, Daniel Steuerwald, Henry Trautsch and Ezra Warren.
