Memorial Day 1910 - a remembrance from VintageImageCraft
May 22, 2009

Monday, May 25, is Memorial Day, formerly known as Decoration Day when it was first enacted in 1868 to honor Civil War casualties. Memorial Day now honors Americans who have sacrificed their lives for their country in any military action.

This postcard was designed by the American artist Philip Caminoni in 1910, when aging Civil War veterans and their families still held vivid memories of the war.

May we always remember and honor those who have served us all.

Scott & Martin
