There will be a ‘VETERAN’S DAY TALK’ on October 21st at 7:00PM at the Free Library of Springfield Township, 8900 Hawthorne Ln, Wyndmoor, PA 19038. That is just off of Papermill Road in Springfield, Montgomery County. (see the attachment.)

The subject will be The Philadelphia National Cemetery with a unique history in the country of the 1,000 black Civil War soldiers and sailors are buried in two segregated sections of the cemetery, a short history of Camp William Penn (the first and largest training camp for United States Colored Troops (USCT)) where several hundred soldiers died of disease at the camp or the hospital that they were sent to and a bit on how we can show respect to our veterans.
