First observed after the end of the Civil War, Memorial Day honors the memory of U. S. soldiers who have died in military service. Local re-enactors will honor the memory of veterans past and
present. May is also Historic Preservation Month, and Fort D is an early 20 th century example of citizens seeking to preserve the past. As a special commemoration, the recently re-acquired 1861
Woodruff cannon, a veteran of the Civil War, will be fired at 11:00 AM on Memorial Day. Make Fort D your destination Memorial Day Weekend. Admission is free.
