Nevada Appeal at 150: Nov. 12, 1975: Veterans Day observed

Members of the Silver City Guard fire a 21-gun salute at the grave of 2nd Lt. Asa Phelps, member of the Silver City Guard, who died in 1862. The graveside services followed a parade in Silver City commemorating Veterans Day. About 40 townspeople followed the guard from the town’s main street up the hill to the graveyard for the services.

This continues the Appeal's review of news stories and headlines during its Sesquicentennial year.
