Jim - 5/27/2022

 

Decoration Day was first celebrated on May 30, 1868. People honored those who had perished in war by decorating their graves with flowers. According to the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs, General John A. Logan picked May 30 because that is when "flowers would be in bloom all over the country."
