We kicked off the Civil War's Sesquicentennial (a/k/a 'The 150s') with a invite from the famous Green-wood Cemetery in Brooklyn for Memorial Day. For the Fourth of July, it was back to Gettysburg National Park and in the Fall we held our annual Civil War Weekend at the Grange for a Third time.

Memorial Day at Green-wood Cemetery

Brooklyn, NY

May 29 - 30, 2011

Green-wood Cemetery in Brooklyn gave the local Civil War Living History community the rare privilege to camp on the grounds for this first Memorial Day of the Sesquicentennial. We had the chance to explore this underrated attraction and participate in an evening candlelight procession with all the Civil War graves decorated with paper lanterns along the way.
