Happy Memorial Day

Today is Memorial Day, a day we remember those who have lived before us.

Memorial Day Flags

Originally called “Decoration Day”, it began on May 30th, 1868 to honor the fallen Civil War soldiers, by decorating their grave sites with flowers and flags.

In 1971, it was officially declared a national holiday, and moved from May 30th, to the last Monday in May.
