Lawrence Hamm, Chairman, People’s Organization For Progress, will honor Black Civil War soldiers during the Memorial Day holiday on Monday, May 31, 2021, 11:30 am at the Pennington African Cemetery, 413-17 So. Main Street in Pennington, New Jersey.

Hamm was a candidate for the United States Senate in last year’s New Jersey Democratic Primary Election.

“I am going there to put flowers on the graves of African-American soldiers buried at the cemetery who served in the Union Army and fought in the Civil War,” Hamm said.

He said that the courage, sacrifice, and contributions of all who fought for the Union and defeated the Confederacy must be recognized.

“However, the role of Black soldiers has not been adequately or properly recognized. They helped bring about that victory which made our freedom possible,” he said.

The Pennington African Cemetery Association will be having a Memorial Day program starting 12 noon at the cemetery.

To contact Lawrence Hamm call (973)801-0001. For information about the history of the Pennington African Cemetery call Angela Witcher at (609)751-2802.
