Memorial Day

Memorial Day began as an occasion to honor and celebrate Union Soldiers, who died serving their country during the American civil war. Memorial Day was inspired by the way people honored their dead in the southern States. After the end of World War I, Memorial Day was extended to include all American men and women who died serving their country in any military action or war.
