MEMORIAL DAY , Monday May 27, originally called Decoration Day, is a day of remembrance for those who have died in
military service for the United States.  Many cities have laid claim to beginning Memorial
Day, though President Lyndon Johnson officially declared Waterloo N.Y. as the birthplace of
Memorial Day in May 1966.
  While there is some dispute as to the origin of the day, the first was observed on May 30, 1868, under
proclamation by General John Logan, national commander of the Grand Army of the Republic. The
first official observation involved placing flowers on the graves of Union and Confederate soldiers at
Arlington National Cemetery.
  By 1890, it was recognized by all of the northern states. The South refused to acknowledge the
day, honouring their dead on separate days until after World War I (when the holiday changed from
honoring just those who died fighting in the Civil War to honouring Americans who died fighting in
any war).
Memorial Day was celebrated on May 30 up to 1971 when the National Holiday Act of 1971
designated the last Monday in May as Memorial Day.
