Happy Memorial Day! Or should I say Decoration Day? If you don’t know what I’m talking about, you should read the history of Memorial Day!!!
Memorial Day was officially proclaimed on 5 May 1868 by General John Logan, national commander of the Grand Army of the Republic, in his General Order No. 11, and was first observed on 30 May 1868, when flowers were placed on the graves of Union and Confederate soldiers at Arlington National Cemetery.
