24 May

Memorial Day (also known as Decoration Day) is a day set aside to honor the memories of the countless men and women who have given their lives in service to their country.

The first national Decoration Day observance was held May 30, 1868, as a tribute to the countless Union and Confederate soldiers killed during the conflict. Following World War I, the focus of the holiday expanded to include all U.S. soldiers killed in war or military action. 

Decoration Day was officially renamed Memorial Day by federal law in 1967.
