Perry’s Victory and International Peace Memorial will honor our fallen veterans, including the three American and three British Naval Officers interned beneath the Memorial Column’s Rotunda, at a Memorial Day Service on the lower plaza at 11 am. The Memorial Day Procession will depart the Park’s Visitor Center at 11 am and make its way to the Column. After the program, a Wreath of Remembrance will be placed over the stone marking the final resting place of the six veterans buried here. Bagpipes will play Taps and Amazing Grace before a musket and rifle volley and firing of the carronade. Area veterans are invited to attend the Memorial Service. Island ferry services give free passage to veterans on Memorial Day.
