The Boys in Blue March Again; The Detroit Veterans Day Parade 2010

The Sons of the Union Veterans of the Civil War participated in the 5th annual Detroit Veterans Day Parade, November 6, 2010.

It was a brisk chilly day but it didn’t rain. The sun eventually came out and warmed cold hands.

Here are a few pictures of the day:

    Chris,
    Goold observation! Although the event didn’t mention that fact, the Sons of Union Veterans were aware of it. That’s the reason I didn’t want to miss the parade. It was especially thrilling as we marched by the Soldiers and Sailors Monument in downtown Detroit. We also made a visit to the Lincoln bust by artisit Gutzon Borglum. It is located right next to the ceremonies held Hart Plaza.

    Interestingly, November 6th was also the 150th anniversary of Lincoln’s election. There was a big celebration and re-enactment here in Springfield for it, which I attended. Glad you had something historic to attend, as well.

    Chris
