Perry’s Victory and International Peace Memorial will honor fallen veterans, including the three American and three British Naval Officers interned beneath the Memorial Column’s rotunda, at a Memorial Day Service on the lower plaza at 11:00 am. The Memorial Day Procession, led by Put-in-Bay American Legion Post #542 will depart the Park’s Visitor Center at 11:00am and make its way to the Column. After the program, a Wreath of Remembrance will be placed over the stone marking the resting place of the six veterans buried here. Bagpipes will play Taps and Amazing Grace before a musket volley and firing of the carronade. Area veterans are invited to attend the Memorial Service.
