Memorial Day...always the final Monday in May. This national holiday originated post-Civil War to honor both Union and Confederate soldiers who died in that conflict. This special day of honor quickly became the day to remember all men and women in the service who died serving their country. By the 20th century Memorial Day had become a long-weekend devoted to such things as shopping, family gatherings, and leisurely activities, such as a trip to the beach. Still this is a special time of remembrance.
