Please take a moment and whisper "thank you" for all those who died to give us our freedom.
Did you know?
Memorial Day was originally Decoration Day. It was first observed on May 30, 1866, to honor Union and Confederate soldiers who died during the American Civil War.
By the late 19th century, Decoration Day had become known as Memorial Day, and had expanded to honor all those who died in service of the United States.
In 1971, Memorial Day became a federal holiday to be observed on the last Monday in May.
Enjoy your freedom on this day, peaches!
