Let the summer festivities begin!
Between the backyard barbecues, parades, and family parties please take a moment to remember what this holiday is really about: honoring the death of our fallen soldiers. Memorial Day began in 1868, after the Civil War, and was used to adorn the grave sites of both Union and Confederate troops. The holiday gained popularity throughout the years and is now recognized and celebrated in all 50 states!
