On December 18, 2021, at more than 2,500 locations across the United States holiday wreaths will be placed on the graves of U.S. service members. While Arlington National Cemetery may be the most famous location of Wreaths Across America, many other cemeteries participate, including hundreds of locations where Civil War soldiers are buried.
This year’s theme of the nationwide event is “Live up to their legacy,” reflecting the sacrifices that have forged and protected our nation.
If you are interested in sponsoring a wreath or participating in a wreath-laying near you, please visit Wreaths Across America’s website: https://www.wreathsacrossamerica.org/
If you place a wreath on a Civil War soldier’s grave through this event next week, we encourage you to share a photo and tag ECW on social media.
