Description: On Memorial Day, May 31, 1909, several people, including men and children, watch a group of soldiers in parade formation march past the doric columns of the crematorium at the Oakwood Cemetery, at So. 53rd and So. Alder. The veterans of the Grand Army of the Republic (GAR) and the Spanish American War are participating in a memorial service over the graves of their departed comrades. During the service, many speeches were made and flags were mounted on the graves, which were strewn with flowers by young girls dressed in pristine white. Members of the National Guard Troop B fired a volley at the end of the ceremony and played taps. (TDL 6/1/09 pg. 12)
