Some holidays find their beginnings in religion, others celebrate an important historical person, and still others celebrate a particular day or world culture.

Although the holiday was officially proclaimed in 1868 by General John Logan, the official recognition does not mark the holiday’s true beginnings. No one person or place can be credited with originating Memorial Day because many, many towns and communities were dedicating time to decorate the graves of American soldiers and arranging gatherings in remembrance of our nation’s heroes well before Memorial Day was officially declared.
