Mount Feake Wreath Laying Ceremony--Congressional Medal of Honor Citation Reading & Taps
Each year the First Lieutenant of the Ancient and Honorable Artillery Company is responsible for laying a wreath at the gravesite of Major George H. Maynard at Mount Feake Cemetery in Waltham Massachusetts (off Prospect Street/adjacent to Charles River). Major George Maynard was a member of our great company who received the Congressional Medal of Honor for actions during the Civil War. The public is invited to observe this ceremony. Often local political leaders and veterans groups attend. The MOH Citation will be read and taps will be played.
A great event for children in the local area. Veterans VFW are welcome to attend.The roadway is handicap accessible but some difficulty on the grass adjacent to the gravesite.
