Happy Memorial Day
Here's a great article I found over at CNN, Ten facts about Memorial Day:
1. It started with the Civil War
2. General Logan made it official
3. It was first known as Decoration Day
4. The holiday is a franchise
5. It was James Garfield's finest hour -- or maybe hour-and-a-half
6. Not even the Unknown Soldier can avoid media scrutiny these days
7. Vietnam vets go whole hog
8. Memorial Day has its customs
9. There is still a grey Memorial Day
10. Each Memorial Day is a little different
These are all explained in detail but you have to go to the article to read it. Have a fun and safe Memorial Day and remember why we celebrate.
