On July 22nd at 10:30 AM, the annual memorial service to honor the life of Revolutionary War Hero, Major General Henry Knox, will take place at the Thomaston Cemetery. The service will open with a revolutionary war solider honor guard. Before the laying of wreaths by many organizations, there will be a short talk about General Knox’s wife Lucy Knox, also buried at the site. Excerpts from General Knox’s original eulogy will be read before the ceremony is closed with a moving rendition of taps.  To attend you can follow the new signs starting on Elm St to lead you to the grave site.
