In 1875, the funeral was a pageant of honored traditions. Families gathered to find joy in a public celebration of a life well lived. At 1 p.m., join historic interpreters as they celebrate the life and honor the death of a fictional 1875 Civil War Veteran with a re-created funeral. Visit the Tangen House, prepared with a period style coffin and funeral drapery. Walk in the funeral procession led by a horse-drawn hearse to New Hope Cemetery for a Veterans Memorial and period hymns sung by the Walnut Hill Choral Society.
