Memorial Day at the Presidio of San Francisco

I received emails from Erik, a gentleman I met in period dress (him, not me :-) ) at Battery Chamberlin this year. It is good to know history majors!

Erik informed me of two major events: Memorial Day at the National Cemetery in the Presidio, and a celebration of the 65th anniversary of D-Day at Battery Chamberlin on June 6th and 7th from 11:00-3:00. (You European visitors may want to “check out” the latter event. More about that later.)

The National Cemetery in the Presidio will be hosting a parade of historical vehicles, people in period costumes, cemetery walks, and concert. Check out the interactive calendar for the Presidio for May 25th. Just click the date.

While you are there, check out the events for May 24th – Buffalo Soldiers in a “Jim Crowe” Army, at the Visitors’ Center in the Officers’ Club, 50 Moraga Avenue. The tour will focus on the elite African American 9th Cavalry, serving in a segregated military at the turn of the century.

I’ll have more about the D-Day anniversary later, but I want to thank Erik for keeping in touch. San Francisco is only an hour away from us, but we do not always hear about events there.

Visitors to San Francisco, I hope that this helps!
