The Conklin Historical Society will be participating in the annual Civil War Illumination to be held in November  2014, at Shawsville Cemetery and Conklin Cemetery in the Town of Conklin.  This remembrance takes place in many cemeteries nationwide, including Arlington and Gettysburg Cemeteries, and locally, at Spring Forest, Vestal, and Floral Park Cemeteries.  Luminaries will be lighted from 6 to 9 P.M. on graves of soldiers buried in these cemeteries.  At 9 P.M., "Taps" will be played to honor those who lost their lives in the Civil War.
