New Years Greeting!

Imagine the New Year’s thoughts of 200 years ago, in 1814. Perhaps thoughts of despair or fear of an ongoing war, perhaps of hope for a fledgling nation. Ours, in 2014 is one of thanks and remembrance for our 1812 veterans, their courage, strength and resolve.

To you, we offer our heartfelt thanks for your interest in honouring our War of 1812 veterans and for your continuing participation in our unique national project. Join us as we celebrate the New Year honouring our 1812 veterans.

We hope you enjoy a small sample of the fruits of your labours both here at at Graveside Project.

If you know or are looking to honour a War of 1812 Veteran please contact us or visit our website.

Happy New Year as we commemorate 2014!
