Event Description

Members of Weakley County Veterans organizations will observe Memorial Day with a ceremony to be held at the Weakley County War Memorial on the Courthouse Square in Dresden on Monday, May 27, 2013 at 11:00 A.M.

Americans pay tribute on Memorial Day to those who fell in battle defending our country. The observance had its beginnings following the Civil War when Southerners marked the graves of those who died fighting for the Confederacy. Today, we honor all of America’s war dead – those who died that freedom might live.

Their selfless sacrifice spans the history of America, from the Revolutionary War to the present. “These patriots left their homes and families when their country called and gave the last full measure of devotion in defense of freedom.”

All veterans present will salute their fallen comrades and ask that all of Weakley County Citizens pause to remember America’s fallen sons and daughters on this upcoming Memorial Day.
