General John A. Logan Proclamation

On May 5, 1868, General John A. Logan of the Grand Army of the Republic proclaimed 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.

It was made in to law as a national holiday in 1971, with a change that Memorial Day be celebrated on the last Monday in May.

On Hallowed Ground: The Story of Arlington National Cemetery - Hardcover book

Hallowed Ground Story of Arlington National Cemetery

On Hallowed Ground Book Preview

Beautifully written book of history of Arlington National Cemetery by Robert M. Poole . Read about the tomb of the unknown and the guarding of the tomb.

Look inside this amazing book for a preview. This marvelous book is available in Kindle, hardcover, MP3 and CD.

As we move along the bone white grave markers for the unknown solders, we ponder about the wars that have taken its toll on Americans, soldiers, fathers, the sons that served and even the sisters. How brave they were and it was not in vain.

The cemetery was first a graveside only for the upper ranked US Army for officers. However, later enlisted men who actually fought for the country in combat out in front of the line of battle were recognized for their service. The wrong was then righted with no longer decimation. Keep the remembrance of those who served our country alive.
