On Saturday, November 3, 2012 at 1:30 p.m., a special ceremony will take place as the United States Flag is once again raised over the GAR Building at 1942 Grand River Avenue.

  • Hi! I came across your blog today after studying the 24th Michigan (possibly the Union unit closest to my heart) and loved it! The design is fantastic and I really enjoyed your 2008 Gettysburg trip photos. I know what you meant about McPherson’s Ridge seeming to be “alive” as you walked through it . . . I feel that every time I visit.
