The Perryman Cemetery, located at 32nd and Utica, was one of two Tulsa-area cemeteries hosting a Wreaths Across America ceremony Saturday, December 14. Ceremonies also took place at a number of cemeteries across the country during this time. The Tulsa Historical Society, owner of the cemetery property, worked with local chapters of Daughters of the American Revolution (DAR) and Sons of Union Veterans of the Civil War (SUVCW) to present the ceremony.  The Perryman Cemetery is Tulsa’s oldest private cemetery and the historic resting place of Creek Native American soldiers who fought in the Civil War.
