Animated Flag flying for   Monday, May 28, 2018
"Memorial Day derives from the time of the Civil War, also called the War Between the States or the War Between the North and the South. Many Americans died in this war, more than all other wars combined. After the war, on May 30, 1868, in order to heal the nation, flowers were put on the graves of both sides of the war. Later it was expanded to be a remembrance of all those who died fighting the nation's battles. Now it is observed on the last Monday of May, and is primary the holiday that starts the summer vacations and the summer season. " - Per Larry Freeman
