This year’s commemoration will be special for two reasons. First, the Indiana SAR will be dedicating a historical marker which describes the events of the battle and directs visitors to the memorial site.
Second, the Col. de la Balme DAR Chapter will be rededicating the memorial which was originally placed at the site by their Chapter in 1930. The base has been replaced and the boulder has been restored.
The sign marker dedication will begin at 2 p.m. at the corner of Old Trail Road East and De La Balme Road in Union Township, Whitley County. From that site the ceremony will move down De La Balme Road to the Memorial Site for the remainder of the commemorative ceremony. You are invited to come and be a part of this historic commemoration.
