Memorial Day Facts

Did You Know: This year’s Memorial Day holiday is Monday, May 27, 2024. The holiday began after the American Civil War in 1868, when the Grand Army of the Republic, an organization of Union veterans, established it. It was originally called Decoration Day, because the citizens were encouraged to decorate the graves of those who died in the “war between the states.” By the 20th Century, competing Union and Confederate holiday traditions merged and Memorial Day honored all Americans killed (see below) while in military service.
