What is Memorial Day?

Memorial Day arose out of appreciation for and remembrance of all who gave their lives defending the nation.

Although the holiday was officially proclaimed in 1868 by General John Logan, many towns and communities decorated the graves of American soldiers and gathered to honor our nation's heroes well before Memorial Day was officially declared.


The Unofficial Start of Barbeque Season

Nowadays, most Americans celebrate Memorial Day with patriotic parades and the first big cookout of barbeque season.
