Memorial Day

This weekend in the United States is the Memorial Day holiday. Original began after the Civil War to honor those who had fallen in service of their country, it has become a way to not only honor our war dead, but to remember all of our ancestors. This year may we all remember those who have sacrificed so much for each of us, regardless of whether they may have served and died in war, or served by fighting daily for survival.

 May none of them ever be forgotten.

  1. What a great memorial day tribute.

    My memorial day tribute was to post about my ancestor John Douglas Laurie. He fought for the 10th Connecticut Infantry during the civil war. He died in November from wounds he received on October 13, 1864.
