Last Post

The North West Territory Alliance Last Post is a list of deceased members. To honor our past members, the entire list is read once a year following Sunday formation at our Memorial Day weekend event in Vincennes, IN in front of the George Rogers Clark Memorial. It is also read in its entirety at our Grand Encampment event every five years. The names of recent deceased are read at the next three events following notification. Many members participate in complete readings by candle light at Saturday evening ceremonies at each event. All readings are followed by the playing and singing of Parting Glass.
