Wreaths Across America's Living History Project
Wreaths Across America’s mission is to Remember, Honor, and Teach. The goal of the Living History Project is to teach visitors about the sacrifice of men and women who have fought so hard for our freedoms.
Our first year bringing history to life through the inaugural Living History Project in 2016 was powerful and we can't thank you enough for your involvement. Wreaths Across America is eager to continue our work with volunteers throughout the country who are passionate about teaching our nation's history through visual portrayals and reenactments.
We are seeking up to 200 volunteers willing to dress in period attire from 7:00 a.m. – 1:00 p.m. on Saturday, December 16, 2017. You will need to provide your own authentic attire and will be assigned to a particular location within or around Arlington National Cemetery. While “on-duty” you will greet the volunteers distributing wreaths and visitors with a silent acknowledgment (salute, nod, bow or curtsy). If engaged by visitors you’ll be free to explain your portrayal and encouraged to discuss the details of the Living History Project. ***(Security requirements strictly prohibit the use of any weapons (actual, imitation, replica, handmade, 3D, etc. ) or flags as part of your period attire or exhibit)***
Your contribution will immeasurably enhance a memorable event for all who attend.
• You will be making history with the inauguration of Wreaths Across America’s first Living History Tribute
• Name recognition on social media and website
