Laurel Hill Cemetery, Philadelphia

On a damp and dreary, wet but mild Winter day, over 200 participants braved the fog and attended the annual event to honor General George G. Meade, his veterans and those who serve and sacrifice for the Nation.

A large number of authentically attired Reenactors, Civilians and the Philadelphia Brigade Band added charm and pageantry to highlight the program.

Below are a number of photos by Scott Sigman, Legion Post 405 at the Union League which serve as witness to the event.

Many THANKS to all those who contributed to the grand success of the Celebration and to all attendees.

Best Wishes for a healthy, happy & successful New Year
