Hancock Society plans Memorial Day event

The W.S. Hancock Society is planning its annual Decoration (Memorial) Day observance at the mausoleum of the famed Union general.

The event is from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Memorial Day, May 31, at Montgomery Cemetery in Norristown, Pa.

Plans call for "a grand patriotic afternoon complete with music, floral tributes and a ceremony featuring Hancock Society historian, Bruce Stocking, along with a military time-line program to remind us of how things used to be."

The society will present a living history May 29-30 at the Mercer Museum in Doylestown, Pa. Members will portray Hancock and his staff planning for an attempt on Richmond, Va.
