Summers and Sgt. Koontz will be held on-site at the monument. Program will include a color guard and a wreath-laying by the United Daughters of the Confederacy and descendants of Capt. Summers. Presented by the Page County Sesquicentennial Committee and the Jack Adams Camp SCV, in association with the Shenandoah Valley Battlefields Foundation. Free. Signs will indicate parking.
