A look at the history of Memorial Day
Memorial Day’s previous title was Decoration Day. The holiday got its name from an old American tradition of decorating the graves of fallen soldiers with flowers and garlands to honor them.
The age-old tradition began right after the end of the American Civil War. History.com notes that the conflict took more lives than any other in US history.
After the end of the Civil War, Americans around the country began hosting springtime tribute ceremonies for the fallen soldiers.
In 1873, New York became the first state to make the Day of Remembrance a legal holiday. Finally, in 1971, Congress passed the Uniform Monday Holiday Act, making Memorial Day became a federal holiday.
