On December 15, 2018, approximately 1.6 million evergreen wreaths will be placed at National Cemeteries across the United States. The wreaths will rest on the graves of veterans from every war in American History, including the Civil War. The volunteers who place the wreaths will say the names etched on the headstones in a special moment of remembrance and honor during the holiday season.
Consider volunteering or supporting this event. There’s still time to purchase/sponsor wreaths, and volunteers are always needed to help place the wreaths on the event day. If you’re interested in finding locations to help, check this finder on Wreaths Across America’s website. To sponsor a wreath, here is the direct link to that page on their website; if you wish to sponsor wreaths at specific locations (perhaps Civil War era national cemeteries) search the location and follow from there.
