Scene in Edmonds: Annual Walk Back in Time honors Spanish-American War veterans

Veterans of the short-lived Spanish-American War of 1898 were in the spotlight Thursday during the annual Walk Back in Time event at Edmonds Memorial Cemetery.

Costumed members of the Edmonds Cemetery Board and some of their friends escorted visitors to designated grave sites, telling stories of five veterans from that time who are buried in Edmonds’ pioneer cemetery: Samuel Snow Atwood (1873-1950), George L. Bolduc (1878-1905), Charles Schlenker Iaeger (1860-1937), Peter Louie Murie (1880-1962) and Reuben Clifton Wieder (1877-1957).

  1. Thanks to everyone who came out to the cemetery for the Walk Back in Time and a special thanks to Mother Nature who provided us with a perfect Edmonds Kind of Day.


  2. Really great event! I learned a great deal about this “forgotten” war and it was very interesting hearing the personal stories about some on those buried here regarding their roles in the conflict. Thanks!


  3. This sounds like a great event, perhaps in future years, it could perhaps be in the early evening hours so more of us can attend.


    1. Thanks for your feedback Diane; at our Board meeting after the Walk we discussed the idea of having the event later in the day for people who work. What time would you suggest. We are putting together ideas now for next year.
