Please join us as we pay honor to members of the 56th United States Colored Troops in a Service of Remembrance and Recognition to be held at Jefferson Barracks National Cemetery on August 15, 2014 at 10 am.

We gather to honor the work of these men and to remember their faithful service and sacrifice made for their country during the war of the rebellion.

We will be honoring them during the month in which they died, and are dedicating the installation of their memorial marker.

Invited guests will include Gov. Nixon, Mayor Slay, County Supt. Dooley, Senators McCaskill & Blunt, and Representatives Clay & Wagner.

Ceremony is free & open to the public.
