Happy Memorial Day
The first Memorial Day was observed on May 30, 1868, three years after the end of the Civil War. It was initially called Decoration Day since people would adorn the fallen soldiers' graves with lowers as a way to honor their sacrifices. As time went by, the name changed to Memorial Day and became a nationwide celebration of all the country's fallen soldiers, not just for the Civil War. Congress declared Memorial Day a federal holiday in 1971.
Thank you to all those to sacrificed their live for us to live in a free country.
