On the Saturday of Memorial Day weekend, May 23, 2015, the American Legion Riders will lay a wreath at the Civil War Unknowns Monument located near Arlington House at Arlington National Cemetery at 1 p.m. The Riders originally had requested laying a wreath at Arlington's more well-known Tomb of the Unknown Soldier on the same day, but a mix-up with the date made that impossible. However, the Sergeant of the Guard suggested to the event planner that they lay a wreath at the often forgotten Civil War monument instead. The Riders and their guests are invited to depart from American Legion Post 177 in Fairfax, Va., via a motorcycle convoy or chartered bus. To sign up for either, visit this site.
