Restored cannon is a memorial for Union Civil War veterans buried at the cemetery
Mayor Carlo DeMaria is pleased to announce that the City of Everett’s Facilities Maintenance Department has restored, repaired and reinstalled a memorial cannon at Glenwood Cemetery. The cannon was commissioned in 1864 and was dedicated in 1938 as a memorial for the members of James A. Perking Post 156 Union veterans of the Civil War who are buried in this spot.
“I want to thank our Facilities Maintenance Department for doing such an amazing job with restoring, repairing and bringing this great historical artifact back to its original condition,” said Mayor DeMaria. “It was a painstaking process and the diligence that was applied in keeping it true to its original form is quite evident in the final result.”
Residents are welcome and encouraged to visit Glenwood Cemetery to view the restored historical cannon and memorial. The memorial is located just a short walking distance from the Gold Star Gazebo on the same road.
