Weekly Offer - Memorial Day COUPON: MEMO18

What was the original name for Memorial Day?

Memorial Day started out as Decoration Day, which unofficially began around the time the Civil War ended, when people began visiting the graves of fallen soldiers. Various cities claim to have originated the tradition, but Waterloo, New York, won out in 1966 when President Lyndon B. Johnson officially designated it the birthplace of Memorial Day.

As such, the first official Decoration Day took place in Waterloo on May 5, 1868. The Grand Army of the Republic, a group of former Union soldiers, requested the observance. The organization's leader, Gen. John A. Logan, said the day should be designated "for the purpose of strewing with flowers or otherwise decorating the graves of comrades who died in defense of their country during the late rebellion, and whose bodies now lie in almost every city, village and hamlet churchyard in the land," (according to the History Channel - www.history.com).

We are celebrating by giving 18% OFF any editing project. Use code: MEMO18 on the order form.

SAVE NOW! This offer expires June 18. Start by sending us your writing for a FREE EDITING SAMPLE.
