Memorial Day has been observed 149 times since its inception when it began as a wave of post-Civil War appreciation events in 1868.
This year marks he 150th observance even though the first official nationwide observance of the holiday did not occur until after poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow, whose eldest son was injured in the Civil War, penned it as “Decoration Day” in 1882. It continued to be a Civil War remembrance until after World War I, when it was expanded to honor those who have died in all American wars.
The Uniform Monday Holiday Act of 1968 established Memorial Day as the last Monday in May, and the day became an official federal holiday in 1971.
