Cards by Maggie at Rootsweb - Memorial Day
A day that honors dead soldiers is always one of mixed emotions. We are proud of the glory they have won, proud of the job they have done to keep us free. And we are sad that good men had to suffer and die.

Memorial Day was called Decoration Day when, on May 30, 1868, General John A. Logan, Commander in Chief of the Grand Army of the Republic, issued the order that, ". . . every post of the G.A.R. should hold suitable exercises and decorate the graves of their dead comrades with flowers."

Memorial Day originally reminded us of those who died during the Civil War, a battle in which our countrymen fought each other, North against South, brother against brother, father against son. Those who died for the South and states' rights were just as sure they were right as those who died for the North and the Union.

Today, Memorial Day, celebrated on the fourth monday in May, honors the dead of all our wars.
