Memorial Day has come to be the unofficial start to summer. In Meigs County, bikers from all over our region gather on Main Street in Pomeroy to begin their annual run. Cookouts can be seen as you pass by many houses in the area, and the American Legions and VFWs of the county hold their annual Memorial Day ceremonies. As a kid in the band at Southern High School, one of my favorite things was what we called our “Memorial Day Tour.”

We began our day at the Racine American Legion Post 602 ceremony, and then headed to Pomeroy for their ceremony. I will never forget the late Gladys Cumings always reciting Flanders Field. Once I was at the age to be able to understand the poem and what it was about, I took it upon myself to memorize it. Today, as a history teacher, it is part of my curriculum when I teach World War I that my students memorize Flanders Field. We would then finish the day in Chester Cemetery for their annual service where the DAR would place flowers on the graves of veterans.

Some more notable Memorial Days I can remember are going to Washington D.C. to watch the Meigs Band in the annual Memorial Day parade, and laying a rose on a headstone in Arlington National Cemetery. I also recall heading to various Meigs County cemeteries with Gary Coleman to play TAPS for some of Meigs County’s fallen. Whatever a person does on Memorial Day, they should at some point pause to remember those in our armed forces who have given their life for our freedoms. Today, we pay respect to those of Meigs County who have paid the ultimate sacrifice.

The following list of Civil War dead was compiled by the wife of Samuel W. Pomeroy and submitted to The Meigs County Telegraph in November of 1870, she served at the secretary of the Soldiers’ Monument Association which erected the Civil War monument on the courthouse lawn.
