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.
