Event Details

The National WWI Museum and Memorial presents the sixth annual Taps at the Tower each evening at sunset (8:45 p.m.) from Sunday, June 16 – Saturday, June 22, 2019. Taps at the Tower links the beauty and simplicity of the Taps bugle call with the symbolism of the Liberty Memorial.

People are invited to come and use the grounds each evening, have a picnic, play games and enjoy the outdoors. At sunset, people will gather at the Liberty Memorial Tower to experience Taps being played during a brief, moving ceremony. The event will occur rain or shine.
