Decoration Day at the Fort May 30th

Written By Editor on 5/9/23 | 5/9/23

Traditional Decoration Day will be observed at the Old Stone Fort in Schoharie on Tuesday, May 30 at 6pm.

The Corporal James Tanner Camp #134, Sons of Union Veterans of the Civil War, will host the ceremonies. The Schoharie County American Legion Honor Guard will also participate.  The ceremony at the monuments in front of the fort will honor all those members of our armed forces who died in America’s wars. This will be followed by the traditional ceremony of the Grand Army of the Republic, as presented by the Tanner Camp.

The finale will be the decoration of the graves. The public is encouraged to help lay flowers on the graves of the 36 Civil War soldiers buried in the Old Stone Fort Cemetery.

The event is rain or shine, and all are welcome.
