On Saturday, October 5, the historic Albany Rural Cemetery will honor the 21st President of the United States, Chester A. Arthur, with a wreath-laying ceremony at his gravesite.

Historian and author David Pietrusza will deliver remarks on President Arthur. Members of the Col. George. L. Willard Camp #154, Sons of Union Veterans of the Civil War will also be present and, as in previous years, bagpipers will accompany the ceremony.
