Each year, Elizabeth Township Historical Society places flags on the graves of all Veterans buried in Elizabeth Township Historic District cemeteries for Memorial Day (also known as Decoration Day). Volunteers ensure each Veteran has a flag in a holder next to their headstone. We believe it is important to recognize the sacrifice these men and women made in the service of their country. Our hope is that visitors will pause when seeing these flags in thankful remembrance of all soldiers who served the United States of America.
