In commemoration of the 100th anniversary of the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier, a traveling replica of the Tomb of the Unknown Solider will be coming to Hendricks County in May.
The half scale tomb is an exact replica of the Tomb of the Unknown Solider. It is owned and maintained by the Exchange Club of Rome, GA. The even will kick off with an opening ceremony at 10 a.m. on Tuesday, May 18th.
Representatives from the Exchange Club, who are all members of the Society of the Honor Guard of the
Tomb of the Unknown Soldier, will give presentations every hour on the hour and will be available to
answer questions. Video will be played in a separate area that will provide additional information and
history of the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier and through the video allow the visitors to take a peek into
the quarters under the Tomb where the guards live.
