Trivia Question

Memorial Day was created to honor fallen soldiers of:
    a. The Revolutionary War
    b. The War of 1812
    c. The Civil War
    d. World War I
Answer: The Civil War — Communities in the North and South organized the first memorial days in 1865, laying flowers on headstones in the months after the war ended. Quickly evolving into an annual tradition, "Decoration Day" was typically set for early summer. The day eventually became known as Memorial Day and now honors American soldiers killed in all wars and conflicts.
