Lawnview Cemetery – Veterans Day
November 13, 2021

The Group Assembles

Each year the 69th continues to place gravestones on the unmarked “final resting places” of the soldiers who fought 1861-1865 in our regiment. Ceremonies are usually held in conjunction with both Memorial Day and veterans Day This a very very special ceremony was held at Lawnview Cemetery in Rockledge Pa. This event marked the 100th grave marker paid and placed by the 69th Pa. On Saturday November 13th the 100th stone marker along with two family markers were honored. The seven men honored included men wounded and captured at Gettysburg; Antietam; Glendale and Cold Harbor. Four died during the war and others died afterward to be buried and never have a grave marker on top of their burial site. 26 members of the 69th gathered to the music of the 69th band and were joined by members of the 28th Pa as well as other descendants of our Civil War 69th  soldiers early in the morning to begin the services. Private Don Ernsberger opened the ceremony with a few words about the special nature of the 100th gravestone and then explained  how all of those honored were originally buried in other cemeteries which had been closed and then demolished.
