Memorial Day History

The custom of honoring ancestors by cleaning cemeteries and decorating graves is an ancient and worldwide tradition, but specific origin of Memorial Day, or Decoration Day as it was firs know, are unclear.

In early rural America, this duty was usually performed in late summer and was an occasion for family reunions and picnics. After the Civil War, America's need for a secular, patriotic ceremony to honor its military dead became prominent, as monuments to fallen soldiers were erected and dedicated, and ceremonies centering on the decoration of soldiers' graves were held in towns and cities throughout the nation.

After World War I, the day expanded to honor those who have died in all American wars.
