Honoring Our Veterans: Presented by Hamish Lutris

Event Date:

This presentation will discuss the ways veterans have been recognized for their service, and how that recognition has changed over time. It will range widely, from creating our first veterans’ organization, the Cincinnati, to observing holidays like Memorial Day, sponsoring the creation of national cemeteries, and passing the GI Bill, among others.
