History of Memorial Day In 1866, some Waterloo, New York, citizens, headed by General John B. Murray and druggist Henry Welles, organized Decoration Day to honor the community's Civil War dead. Graves were decorated in remembrance of the sacrifices made by the soldiers and their families; thus was the first Memorial Day observed in the United States, as it has been ever since. Today there is a Memorial Day Museum in a historic house on Main Street .
Are you a hero? • When were you brave? • When were you smart? • When were you determined? • When were you hard-working? • When were you kind?
Do you know a hero? Tell your hero, “Thank you!”
