What Is Memorial Day?
Memorial Day is a federal holiday in the United States that is observed on the last Monday of May. The holiday is dedicated to honoring and remembering the men and women who have died while serving in the U.S. military.
Today, Memorial Day is observed by thousands of Americans across the country with parades, ceremonies, and the decoration of graves. These loving decorations are our way to homage to our fallen soldiers.
While colorful flowers and American flags are common, Memorial Day products have grown to include more than just those items. It may be 2023, but the origins of Memorial Day can be traced all the way back to the Civil War!
Why Do We Celebrate Memorial Day?
Happening between the years 1861 and 1865, the Civil War resulted in the deaths of more than 600,000 soldiers – making it the deadliest war in U.S. history. In the years following the war, this started the trend of communities in the United States holding events and ceremonies to honor our fallen soldiers.
In 1868, General John A. Logan, the commander-in-chief of the Grand Army of the Republic, a Union veterans’ organization, issued a proclamation calling for a nationwide day of remembrance for the soldiers who had died during the Civil War. The first official observance of Memorial Day was held on May 30, 1868, when flowers were placed on the graves of Union and Confederate soldiers at Arlington National Cemetery.
In the years following its establishment, Memorial Day was primarily a day of remembrance for those who had died in the Civil War. However, as the United States became involved in other conflicts, the holiday evolved to honor the sacrifices of all men and women who had died while serving in the U.S. military.
It was not until 1971 that Memorial Day was officially declared a federal holiday by an act of Congress. The National Moment of Remembrance, established again by Congress in 2000, asks Americans to observe a moment of silence at 3:00 p.m. local time on Memorial Day to honor the sacrifices of those who have died in service to their country.
Whether with a moment of silence, Memorial Day clothing, or other types of Memorial Day accessories, take the time to show your appreciation on this important holiday!
