Juneau Co., WI - 1882

The Mauston Star, 01 Jun 1882

A day has been fixed by law for properly observing the memory of our herous who gave up their life in the great rebellion, that their country might live and prosper.  On Tuesday, May 30, in almost every city and village ceremonies suitable to the occasion were held.

Arrangements had been made in Mauston to duly honor the memory of the departed, and at two o'clock in the afternoon a procession was formed under directin of I. H. STEWART adn S. C. PLUMMER, Marshals in the following order: Masuton Cornet Band, Mauston Light Guard, Odd Fellows, veterans, children with baskets of flowers, and citizens in carriages.  The procession was very long, it being estimated that as many as fifteen hundred assembled on the grounds of the dead to drop a tear in memory of some departed friend.
