Bronx cemetery tour to focus on World War I veterans

Woodlawn Cemetery in the Bronx will offer a walking tour honoring World War I Veterans on Sunday, Nov. 5 at 3 p.m.

Woodlawn Cemetery is the final resting place of veterans and dependents of every conflict going back to the American Revolution. In honor of Veteran’s Day, a tour will be led by  Kevin C. Fitzpatrick, the author of “World War I New York: A Guide to the City’s Enduring Ties to the Great War.” He will stop at graves and memorials of World War I veterans, men and women, who served in the Great War. You will meet enlisted men who served in trench warfare, brave aviators who risked their lives in biplanes, a member of the Harlem Hellfighters, and poor immigrants who were drafted and served their new country with honor.

Tickets are $20 or $15 for students and seniors. To register, go to: https://www.woodlawn.org/conservancy/tours-events/
