Memorial Day is the day set aside for remembering those who have fallen in the service of their country. First known as Decoration Day, it originated after the Civil War to remember the fallen Union and Confederate soldiers in that bloodiest of American conflicts. We now use the day to remember all of those who have fallen while in the armed services, going back to the origins of the country.
