    President John Tyler wreath laying ceremony

    U.S. Army Combined Arms Support Command color guard commemorates the birthday of the 10th President of the United States, John Tyler, with a wreath-laying ceremony March 29 at the president’s gravesite in Hollywood Cemetery in Richmond. The U.S. Army was designated by the White House to conduct the wreath laying on the birthday of Tyler who was born in 1790 in Charles City County, Virginia. Initially, the White House Military Office was responsible for coordinating the annual placement of Presidential Wreaths at the tombs and resting places of former Presidents, other famous Americans and at certain memorials of historical significance. President Franklin D. Roosevelt started the practice of having military representatives place wreaths on his behalf at areas outside the Washington, D.C. area. Ceremonies that were repeated year-to-year led to the development of the "President's Approved Wreath List" approved by President Johnson on August 11, 1966, and further expanded with the passing of each former President.
