Commemorating Memorial Day at the State House and cemetery

by The 100 Companies

For an emotional Memorial Day commemoration, visit the Carlisle Cemetery (about 35 miles from Little Rock) on Saturday, May 25 to help place flags on veterans’ graves, with special attention to those that are unmarked. The group will meet at the Pavillion with flag placement starting at 9 a.m.

Carry on the weekend tradition with a tour of the Old State House Museum (Arkansas’ original state capitol), which is free on Monday, May 27. Learn about the Arkansas vote to secede from the U.S., view inaugural gowns of governors’ wives and discover a duel to the death between legislators.
