Memorial Day


Memorial Day in the United States is a day of remembrance for those who have perished in military service to our country. It began in the aftermath of the Civil War, when communities began to pay springtime tributes to their fallen countrymen by decorating their graves with spring flowers. The original date of the holiday was chosen because it does not fall on the anniversary of any major battle.

Unofficially, this day of remembrance also marks the beginning of summer.
