Memorial Day was originally known as Decoration Day. Many people still designate it as such. It was a time set aside to honor the nation’s Civil War dead by decorating their graves. It was first celebrated on May 30, 1868, to commemorate them after General John A. Logan of the Grand Army of the Republic made a proclamation on May 5 in General Order No. 11 that:
“The 30th of May 1868 is 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. In this observance, no form of ceremony is prescribed, but posts and comrades will in their own way arrange such fitting services and testimonials of respect as circumstances may permit.” During the first May 30, 1868 celebration of Decoration Day, General James Garfield made a speech at Arlington National Cemetery, after which 5,000 participants helped to decorate the graves of more than 20,000 Union and Confederate soldiers who were buried in the cemetery.
