A pre-Memorial Day ceremony was held at Mount Auburn Cemetery. The Fort McHenry Guard Fife and Drum corps marched with the Fife and Drum Corps from Booker T. Washington Middle School, highlighting the role of U.S. Colored Troops. The NPS and Booker T. Washington are involved in a pilot program together. Members of the public who attended also marched in the short parade on cemetery grounds.
