JOTW 22-2011

30 May 2011

www.nedsjotw.com

This is newsletter number 879

The 30th day of May 1868 is designated for the purpose of strewing with flowers or otherwise decorating the graves of comrades, who died in defense of their country during the late rebellion, and whose bodies now lie in almost every City, Village, hamlet, and church yard in the land…. It is the purpose of the commander-in-chief to inaugurate this observance with the hope that it will be kept up from year to year, while asurvivor of the war remains, to honor the memory of his departed comrades.

– General John A. Logan (1826-1886)

(General Orders No. 11, Grand Army of the Republic, 5 May 1868, excerpts.)

My great grandfather’s GAR hat hangs on the wall in my old room at my mother’s house. John Kirby was a drummer boy at age 16. After he died some years later, his wife would come to the cemetery each Decoration Day, and the other GAR veterans would come to pay their respects to her and the other widows. The cemetery in Saxonville, Mass., was a very busy place on Decoration Day.

My mother remembers this quite well. She is 96.

Logan International Airport in Boston is named after Gen. John Logan.

As noted by Ed Wittman: “Today is celebrated in the United States as Memorial Day, originally intended as an occasion to decorate the graves of our war dead, but now observed as something of an “All Souls Day” in which the memory of past family members is also honored. Originally called “Decoration Day,” the holiday was first observed on 30 May 1868 at the order of Civil War general John A. Logan in his capacity as commander-in-chief of the Grand Army of the Republic, an organization for Union Army veterans. Soon, the custom became nation-wide, and by 1882 it was being celebrated everywhere, even in the former Confederacy. In 1968, Memorial Day's official observance was moved to the last Monday in May to create a three-day weekend, much to the dismay of many traditionalists.
