The occasion, originally called Decoration Day, began in Illinois in May 1868, when General John A. Logan of the Grand Army of the Republic, a local organization of civil war veterans, proclaimed the Day as a time for the nation to decorate the graves of the Union war dead with flowers. The purpose of the remembrance, he said, was to cherish “tenderly the memory of our heroic dead, who made their breasts a barricade between our country and its foes.” The practice spread throughout the country, and in 1966, the name was changed to Memorial Day and at the same time, it became a federal holiday.
And so on every Memorial Day, small flags and bouquets of colorful flowers spring up on headstones and memorial plaques in cemeteries all over the country芳贺优里亚, decorating the graves of military heroes.
