Declaration Day

Memorial Day was formerly Declaration Day, and it commemorates the men and women who died while in Military Service to the United States. First enacted to honor Union ans Confederate soldiers following the Civil War. The first known observance was in Boalsburg, Pa., on October, 1964. May 30 was chosen as the official day of observance because it was NOT the anniversary of a battle. God bless America, and God bless our military service members.
