Invites you to a

“Friend Raiser Event”

At the

Delaware City Library – Motiva Room

5th & Bayard Street

Right here in Delaware City lies an unheralded bit of American history – an unmarked cemetery containing the remains of generations of African-American people from our area. This cemetery is the burial place of 5 members of the US Colored Troops who served bravely on the side of the Union in the Civil War.

It is our mission to restore this cemetery, owned by the Mt. Salem Union AME church, and to tell the story of the mostly forgotten people who lived, died, and were buried there.

Join us to learn about the proposed trail and planned restoration of this cemetery.
