Veterans Day Ceremony

November 11, 2023 @ 1:00 pm

The Veterans Day ceremony at the Carnegie Carnegie carries special resonance. The ACFL&MH is home to the Captain Thomas Espy Post of the Grand Army of the Republic (GAR).  The Grand Army of the Republic was the progenitor of all veterans’ groups in this country. 

Congressman Chris Deluzio will serve as the master of ceremonies for the program.  Congressman Deluzio, who represents PA’s 17th District, is a United States Naval Academy graduate and Iraq War veteran, a voting rights attorney and a union organizer.

The ACFL&MH is grateful to veterans from Carnegie’s American Legion Post 82, who have been part of the Library & Music Hall’s annual ceremony since its inception.  Members of the 9th PA Reserves, a Civil War living history and re-enactment group, also participates in the program.  Students from Carnegie Elementary will read poem as part of the ceremony.

This brief but moving ceremony takes place rain or shine. Join us for cookies and coffee in the Lincoln Gallery. . Consider staying for our “Second Saturday Civil War Series,” moved back to 2:00 pm. to accommodate the Veterans Day ceremony.  Writer, historian and educator Codie Eash will speak about Abraham Lincoln’s visit to Gettysburg, commemorating the 160th Anniversary (November 19, 1863) of his deliverance of “The Gettysburg Address.”
