Following is an article stating the
origin and purpose of Memorial Day
which was instituted May 30, 1868.
The organization known as the
rand Army of the Republic is com
posed of the veteran soldiers, sailors
and marines who carried the flag of
the republic during the great rebel
lion, of 1861-65. This unique and
patriotic association of the loyal sol
djers of the matlon came into being
in 1866. It spread rapidly through
out the norttern states and by 1868
it had achieved a nation-wide body
with national headquarters at the
national capltol, having department
organizations embracing posts in
cities and towns and membership of
several hundred thousand. Its funda
mental object was expressed in three
words: "Fraternity, Charity.- Loyalty."
In 1868 Gen. Join A Logan, who
(typified the highest example of the
volunteer soldier, was commander-in-chief
and I was adjutant general of
this splendid organization. , I will
not now trace its growth and Influence
upon the national life during the half
century it has been the nation's
great sctool of patriotism. Its mem
bership is rapidly yielding to the
ravages of time and old age, and wilt
iu a few years cease to exist. But ita
spirit survives and will in the un
charted future of our beloved country
continue-to shed its inspiring Jn.
Jfluence so lonj as the sentiment of
liberty and free government is the
guiding motjve of our people.
Early In May. 1868, I received a
letter from a comrade residing in
Cincinnati, O.. suggesting that In
some of the countries of Europe it
was the custom to strew with flowers
in the springtime the graves of heroes
who had fallen in defense of their
country, and asked if such custom
would not be appropriate to commem
orate the services of our comrades
who had given their lives ttat the
nation might not perish. Upon read
ing this letter there seemed to me

Movd by the thought which had
order at once.
My object was to have the cere
atonies come in a spring month, but.
to postpone.it to a date which would
give opportunity for flowers to ma
nure. The 31st of May that year fell
upon Sunday, and so I named May 30.
This is the true and only reason for
having named May 30 as the date to
