I remember my father, who was born in 1915, talking about Decoration Day, which was the precursor to Memorial Day. I also read an article this weekend which stated a memorial day was held after The Civil War to honor the slain.
The first Memorial Day was observed in 1866 by liberated slaves at the historic race track in Charleston. The site was a former Confederate prison camp as well as a mass grave for Union soldiers who had died while captive, during the US Civil War. The freed slaves re-interred the dead Union soldiers from the mass grave to individual graves, fenced in the graveyard & built an entry arch declaring it a Union graveyard; a very daring thing to do in the South shortly after the North's victory. On May 30 1868 the freed slaves returned to the graveyard with flowers they'd picked from the countryside & decorated the individual gravesites.
