Veterans Day – Thursday, November 11th, 2021 1:30pm & 3:00pm

Join The Castle in the “Arlington Section” of Oak Grove Cemetery to learn the fascinating stories of Marietta’s Doughboys, including: a Native-American NFL player and coach turned insurance agent, a local barber who witnessed horrific racism and violence in a southern training camp while serving his country, an award-winning Marietta newspaper columnist and his “Uncle Twitch,” a family grocer who was wounded on Flanders Field, and an officer in the “Buffalo Soldiers” Division whose enduring legacy continues in Marietta to this day. Join us as we remember and honor those soldiers who started this revered national holiday.

Cost: $10
