Everyone is Welcome! !!ii ...... i i ! The History of Memorial Day Memorial Day was originally known as Decoration Day because it was a time set aside to honor the nation's Civil War dead by decorat- ing their graves. It was first widely observed on May 30, 1868, to commemorate the sacrifices of Civil War soldiers, by proclama- tion of General John A. Logan of the Grand Army of the Republic, an organization of former sailors and soldiers. On May 5, 1868, Logan declared in General Order No. 11 that: The 30th of May, 1868, is des- ignated for the purpose of strewing with flowers, or otherwise decorat- ing the graves of comrades who died in defense of their country during the late rebellion, and whose bodies now lie in almost every city, village, and hamlet churchyard in the land. In this observance no form of ceremony is prescribed, but posts and com- rades will in their own way arrange such fitting services and testimonials of respect as circum- stances may permit. During the first celebration of Decoration Day, General James Garfield made a speech at Arlington National Cemetery, after which 5,000 participants helped to decorate the graves of the more than 20,000 Union and Confederate soldiers buried in the cemetery. This 1868 celebration was inspired by local observances of the day in several towns through- out America that had taken place in the three years since the Civil War. In fact, several Northern and Southern cities claim to be the birthplace of Memorial Day, including Columbus, Miss.; Macon, Ga.; Richmond, Va.; Boalsburg, Pa.; and Carbondale, Ill. In 1966, the federal govern- ment, under the direction of President Lyndon Johnson, declared Waterloo, N.Y., the offi- cial birthplace of Memorial Day. They chose Waterloo--which had first celebrated the day on May 5, 1866-- because the town had made Memorial Day an annual, commu- nity-wide event during which busi- nesses closed and residents deco- rated the graves of soldiers with flowers and flags. By the late 1800s, many com- munities across the country had begun to celebrate Memorial Day and, after World War I, observanc- es also began to honor those who had died in all of America's wars. In 1971, Congress declared Memorial Day a national holiday to be celebrated the last Monday in May. (Veterans Day, a day set aside to honor all veterans, living and dead, is celebrated each year on November 11 .) Today, Memorial Day is cele- brated at Arlington National Cemetery with a ceremony in which a small American flag is placed on each grave. Also, it is customary for the president or vice-president to give a speech honoring the contributions of the dead and lay a wreath at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier. About 5,000 people attend the ceremony annually.
