April marks the 100th anniversary of United States' entry into World War I. Our trolley tour pays homage to the many laid to rest at Green-Wood who served in this war intended to end all wars. We will visit the graves of wealthy heiresses Dorothy and Gladys Cromwell whose dramatic double suicide captured the attention of the nation; reconnaissance pilot Lieutenant Kenneth Culbert shot down over enemy lines; and ace bomber pilot First Lieutenant John Cowperthwaite Tyler, amongst others. Along the way, we will read from letters these men and women detailing their heroic exploits, as well as discuss how our dedicated team of volunteers have identified these individuals and where they are interred.
$20 for members of Green-Wood and BHS / $25 for nonmembers.
