Heinz History Center, Fort Pitt Museum plan Veterans Day activities
A flag ceremony will be held at noon at the Heinz History Center, with local veterans and museum visitors unfurling a 36-foot American flag in the Great Hall, accompanied by the singing of the National Anthem, a moment of silence for those who have served our country, and the ceremonial folding of the flag.

This event is included in regular museum admission ($16; $14 for seniors 62 and up; $6.50 for students and children age 6-17.)
The Fort Pitt Museum, part of the Heinz History Center's museum system, will present living history demonstrations in Point State Park from 11 a.m.-3 p.m. as part of the Steel City Salutes the Troops event, which will commence following the Veterans Day Parade. Re-enactors will present military drills through the ages, demonstrating how soldiers marched in formation, fired muskets, and played military music in the 18th, 19th, and 20th centuries.
The demonstrations are free and open to the public.
