Tribute to our Forgotten Civil War Soldiers
Carson City, NV – On April 10, at 1:15 P.M., the public is invited to a tribute to the Forgotten Civil War Soldiers Project at the Lone Mountain Cemetery. The tribute-organized by the Nevada State Society Daughters of the American Revolution (DAR) pays homage to those who have served and are serving this great nation. We are honored to have DAR President General Denise Doring VanBuren provide remarks along with Nevada National Guard Brigadier General.
Renovations are well underway, with the planting of trees, painting of the fence that encircles the Union Soldier statue, a new flagpole, and the replacement of numerous flag holders that are either bent, broken, or missing.
Further renovations include the replacement of a veteran’s gravestone, new section markers, a new bench, coving repair, and the installation of a new water irrigation system. These renovations are to be completed by Veterans Day 2022.
A special recognition to Zachary Forrest—a candidate for Eagle Scout—for his contributions to this project.
“I am so honored to be a part of the National Society of the Daughters of the American Revolution and Mayor of this community. Both honor our veterans with pride. Please join us to pay tribute to these soldiers,” Mayor Bagwell.
