  • Memorial Day is an attempt to remember and say “Thanks” to those who gave their best so that we could continue to enjoy our freedoms.
    Our present commemoration of this day came out of the Civil War when in 1865 some ladies in Vicksburg, Miss., chose May 30 as a day to place flowers on the graves of their war dead. This soon spread North and South and came to be known as “Decoration Day.” Finally, it was called “Memorial Day” to honor the fallen of all our nation’s wars who made the ultimate sacrifice for our freedoms.
