MEMORIAL
DAY
Memorial Day is a day of remembering the men and women who died while serving in
the United States Armed Forces. Formerly known as Decoration Day, it originated after the American Civil War to commemorate the Union and Confederate soldiers who died in the Civil War. By the 20th century, MemorialDay had been extended to honor all Americans who have died while in the military service. Arlington Arlington 2 SOURCES: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Memorial_Day
