Surviving Civil War Veterans Memorial Day Parade in DC
Surviving Union and Confederate Civil War veterans, march in Memorial Day parade.
Civil war veterans salute at a monument, near a cannon. A Civil War Union soldier places flowers on a bed in the room where Abraham Lincoln wrote his famous ‘Gettysburg Address’. He salutes and looks at a copy of Lincoln’s handwritten speech, displayed on the wall. Civil War veterans sit around a fire, some in wheelchairs. Veterans reach across a stone wall to shake hands.
