What Is Memorial Day?
As so many people asked “What is Memorial Day”? If you are also looking to get the answer for this question. You are at the right place.
It is the Day of Honor, honor to those who died while serving in US Armed Forces. Memorial Day is the federal holiday in the United States, which observed on the last Monday of May, every year. This day originated as Decoration Day after American Civil War (1868). (Why it named as Decoration Day?) Grand Army of Republic (an organization of Union Veterans) formerly introduced this day for the nation to decorate the graves of the soldiers which died during the war with flowers.
