Memorial Day 2014

Originally known as Decoration Day, the U.S. tradition of annually remembering and honoring those soldiers who have fallen while serving in the armed forces began after the American Civil War.

For several decades the day commemorated those Union and Confederate soldiers who died in that battle. By the 20th Century, tribute was extended to all those who had died in service to their country.
