Memorial Day Service at Mountain View Cemetery Honoring Civil War Veterans

May 25, 2015 @ 2:00 pm - 5:00 pm


Post Card 6A special Memorial Day Service will take place at Mountain View Cemetery, honoring the more than 700 Civil War veterans who fought on both sides of the conflict and now are buried in the picturesque Altadena graveyard.

The program begins at 2:00 pm, in the center of the cemetery, south of Founder’s Circle, and features representatives from the Rosecrans Camp SUVCW (Sons of Union Veterans of the Civil War), Daughters of Union Veterans Auxiliary, United Daughters of the Confederacy, and the 1st North Carolina Cavalry (re-enactors). Nick Smith, Camp Commander of the Rosecrans Camp #2, Sons of Union Veterans of the Civil War, president of the Pasadena Civil War Round Table, and co-curator of the PMH exhibition When Johnny Came Marching West: How the Civil War Shaped Pasadena, is the emcee.

In addition to the formal program, the public may also take tours of both Union and Confederate Graves, and attend a living history presentation on Thaddeus Lowe at the Lowe Family plot (Thaddeus Lowe, a record-setting balloonist, was the head of the Union Army’s aerial surveillance corps).

Memorial Day – or Decoration Day, as it was originally known – was established as a day to remember and honor Civil War veterans.  For Nick Smith’s blog post on the origins of the Memorial Day holiday, please visit https://dev.pasadenahistory.org/curators-blog/memorial-day/

Moreover it may also be used to solve some other complaint as given by your dispenser. Certainly it isn’t all. When you order medicaments like Sildenafil 100mg you have to know about Sildenafil 100mg. Perhaps you afore heard about it. The most common sex problems in men are erectile malfunction and ejaculation disorders. Young men smart from erectile dysfunction need professional help.
