In partnership with Greater East End Management District, all five platoons will help revitalize Harrisburg-Jackson Cemetery, located at 7800 Bowie, Houston, TX 77023, located near Lawndale and Broadway.

Harrisburg-Jackson Cemetery is designated as a Texas State Historical Marker. The African cemetery dates from 1883 - 1940 with Buffalo Soldiers and Veterans laid to rest.

We will be cutting, edging, clearing debris, building seating areas, and restoring some of the markers.

Here are some interesting links on the history of the cemetery:
