History Tidbits

Originally known as Decoration Day, Memorial Day originated three years after the Civil War ended, on May 5, 1868, when the head of the organization of Union veterans — the Grand Army of the Republic (GAR) — established Decoration Day as a time for the nation to decorate the graves of the war dead with flowers.
