Rhode Island Daughters of the American Revolution: America250! Grave Marking Event
May 12 @ 2:30 pm - 5:00 pm
Join the Rhode Island Daughters of the American Revolution as they dedicate an America 250 marker in honor of the men and women who achieved American independence. The ceremony will include a wreath laying in honor of those who sacrificed so much for our nation’s freedom, including the 300 Revolutionary War veterans buried in the North Burial Ground. The marker will serve as a symbol of our gratitude for their sacrifice and a reminder of the courage and resilience that founded our nation. Come be a part of this historic event and pay tribute to our nation’s founders and the contributions of Rhode Islanders, such as those that burned the Gaspee or served in the 1st Rhode Island Regiment and fought at the Battle of Rhode Island. This dedication and ceremony are open to all!
