A Philipsburg tradition was revived Sunday when area congregations came together at the Union Church “Mud Church” to hold a memorial service with military honors for all veterans, especially those from the Revolutionary and the Civil Wars, who are buried in the Union Churchyard.
The ceremony included riffle salutes and wreath laying by the American Legion Honor Guard and the Civil War re-enactors from the 148th Regiment, followed by an ecumenical memorial service sponsored by the Philipsburg Ministerium and the Philipsburg Historical Foundation.
Other participating congregations included the Church of the Nazarene, First Church of Christ, First Evangelical Lutheran Church, First Presbyterian Church and the Morning Star Fellowship.
