In this day and age we often forget the historical meaning of memorial day. Memorial Day history is about honoring those who have died in service to our nation. It is about remembering the courage and strength about those who gave their lives.

Originally known as “Decoration Day,” there are many towns that say it began in their neck of the woods. 

It was first observed May 30, 1868.

This information was adapted from “Memorial Day History.”
