U.S. Inside/Background

Memorial Day

Celebrated on the last Monday of May, this holiday honors the dead.
Although it originated in the aftermath of the Civil War, it has become a day on which the dead of all wars, and the dead generally, are remembered in special programs held in cemeteries, churches, and other public meeting places.
