Memorial Day is a day to remember those before us who have defended our way of life. And it is sad to admit it but yes ALOT of people in America have forgotten what its all about. I am in the Mitiltary, and I wish for once people would help us respect those that gave there lives for us. I find it very desturbing that America has to be attacked before anyone notices that we (the military) are out there everyday, working hard to keep America safe and free. We dont get days off, even if we do have a "day off" we could still be called in. Those who are in the military have not forgotten Memorial Day. And we respect any American that still remembers what Memorial Day is all about. We do what we do to protect everyone in America, its nice to be noticed and honored for what we give up to Serve Our Country!
how did confederate memorial day start?
Memorial Day was officially proclaimed on 5 May 1868 by General John Logan, national commander of the Grand Army of the Republic, in his General Order No. 11, and was first observed on 30 May 1868, when flowers were placed on the graves of Union and Confederate soldiers at Arlington National Cemetery. The first state to officially recognize the holiday was New York in 1873. By 1890 it was recognized by all of the northern states. The South refused to acknowledge the day, honoring 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 honoring Americans who died fighting in any war). It is now celebrated in almost every State on the last Monday in May (passed by Congress with the National Holiday Act of 1971 (P.L. 90 - 363) to ensure a three day weekend for Federal holidays), though several southern states have an additional separate day for honoring the Confederate war dead: January 19 in Texas, April 26 in Alabama, Florida, Georgia, and Mississippi; May 10 in South Carolina; and June 3 (Jefferson Davis' birthday) in Louisiana and Tennessee.

Memorial Day often marks the start of the summer vacation season, and Labor Day its end.
Begun as a ritual of remembrance and reconciliation after the Civil War, by the early 20th century, Memorial Day was an occasion for more general expressions of memory, as ordinary people visited the graves of their deceased relatives, whether they had served in the military or not. It also became a long weekend increasingly devoted to shopping, family get-togethers, fireworks, trips to the beach, and national media events such as the Indianapolis 500 auto race, held since 1911 on Memorial Day.
