Memorial Day was originally created to honor fallen soldiers of which war?
- The Civil War:Memorial Day had its beginnings at the end of the Civil War when the North and South went about commemorating the dead who fell in what remains the bloodiest war in American history. Communities in the North and South organized the first memorial days in 1865, laying flowers on headstones in the months after the war ended. Quickly evolving into an annual tradition, “Decoration Day” was typically set for early summer. The day eventually became known as Memorial Day and now honors American soldiers killed in all wars and conflicts.
