President Harrison’s Wreath-Laying Ceremony – Canceled for 2021
Unfortunately, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, President Harrison’s Wreath-Laying Ceremony will not be held in 2021. We hope that you will plan to join us in 2022 when we’re able to offer this wonderful event again!
This year we will be releasing a video on August 20, President Harrison’s 188th birthday, featuring several participants sharing important aspects of his life. You can find the video here as well as on our social media channels and through our electronic newsletter.
President Harrison (1833-1901), our nation’s 23rd president, served from 1889-1893. He was an Indianapolis lawyer and later served as a Civil War Colonel in the 70th Volunteer Infantry. Harrison, a Republican, won the presidential election in 1889 and served one term. A wreath from the President of the United States is placed on his gravesite annually for his birthday.
