It was held at the historic Hollywood Cemetery and also attended by former Virginia Governor Peter E. Broadbent, Jr., vice-chair of the James Monroe Memorial Foundation, and council members David Southworth (representing the Society of the Cincinnati) and Tim Fenton (representing the Virginia Mayflower Society).
