Memorial Day Military Timeline Event

Following the American Civil War, a “Decoration Day” began in communities across America remembering soldiers who gave the ultimate sacrifice. Senator John A. Logan, a former Union officer on staff with Major General William T. Sherman, was instrumental in making this a formal national day honoring our fallen soldiers, which became Memorial Day. With this year being the Year of the Woman, we are focusing on women’s contributions in the military through the ages. Join military living historians representing the American soldier of all time periods throughout our nation’s history.
