10-24-2015-Civil War Memorial Support

The American Legion, Elks, Veterans Memorial, and Freemasons of Cornish and Lebanon New Hampshire gathered together today to recommit the graves of some of those union soldiers who served with distinction in the Civil War.  Many others attended this event, including Abraham Lincoln himself (well sort of.)

After a short precession around the graveyard led by the reenactors, we stood at attention as the commitment ceremony unfolded; ending with a poignant rendition of taps.
