Event Details

An entire battalion of military headstones at Placerville Union Cemetery, many dating back to the Civil War, are lichen-encrusted to the point of illegibility, leaning precariously, or both.

 

 

On Saturday, April 27 over 80 volunteers helped clean and straighten veteran headstones. The event was hosted by the LDS Church in Placerville. Volunteers from Save the Graves also lent a hand.

     

                 

More cleaning parties coming soon!
