BATTLE CASUALTIES PLAQUE DEDICATION

This year during the Celebrate Commemorate Weekend in Waterloo, NY there will be an additional ceremony at its American Civil War Memorial located on the corners of Washington and Locust Streets.

Not only will there be the 12th annual Illumination and Remembrance Ceremony at 7:30 pm, Friday, May 22nd supported by five (5) Civil War Organizations and the Celebrate Commemorate Committee, but there will also be a Battle Casualties Plaque Dedication on Saturday, May 23rd at 2:00 pm
