How Memorial Day Has Evolved

Picture this scene – 5,000 participants helping to decorate the graves of over 20,000 both Union and Confederate soldiers. That is what Memorial Day is all about and how it really originated. This day was originally called the Decoration Day because people began decorating the graves of the fallen, but since World War I, it has evolved into Memorial Day to include all soldiers who have made sacrifices for this country. While Memorial Day is a full day commemoration for the men and women who died during their military conflicts, there is an exact moment at 3:00 pm local time nationwide for a moment of silence is observed. Although Memorial Day is not a three day weekend filled with plenty of events to do, many around the country still take their time to honor and remember and honor those who have died protecting our freedom and our safety.
