The David Law Firm has sponsored 10 wreaths for Wreaths Across America Day. Wreaths Across America’s mission, “Remember, Honor, Teach”, is carried out in part by coordinating wreath laying ceremonies a specified Saturday in December at Arlington, as well as veterans’ cemeteries and other locations in all 50 states and beyond. They also organize a week of events including international veteran’s tributes, ceremonies at State Houses and a week-long “Veteran’s Parade” between Maine and Virginia where we stop along the way to spread our message about the importance of remembering our fallen heroes, honoring those who serve, and teaching our children about the sacrifices made by veterans and their families to preserve our freedoms.
The David Law Firm’s wreaths will be placed in the Florence National Cemetery on Saturday, December 13, 2014. Florence National Cemetery was originally created on land appropriated, and later purchased, by the federal government. The land was first owned by James H. Jarrott and was a quarter of a mile from the Florence Stockade. It became a National Cemetery in 1865, and remains from nearby Civil Aare battlefield cemeteries were transferred and reinterred there.
Florence National Cemetery was listed in the National Register of Historic Places in 1998.
