Volume XVII Issue XXIII The Ogden Valley news Page 5 May 15, 2010 Annual Commemoration Ceremonies Offered by American Legion Post 129 Memorial Day was originally known as America’s wars. In 1971, Congress declared Decoration Day because it was a time set aside to honor the nation’s Civil War dead by decorating their graves. It was first widely observed on May 30, 1868 to commemorate the sacrifices of Civil War soldiers by proclamation of General John A. Logan of the Grand Army of the Republic—an organization of former sailors and soldiers. On May 5, 1868, Logan declared in General Order No. 11 that: “The 30th 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, and hamlet churchyard in the land. In this observance no form of ceremony is prescribed, but posts and comrades will in their own way arrange such fitting services and testimonials of respect as circumstances may permit.” By the late 1800s, many communities across the country had begun to celebrate Memorial Day, and after World War I, observances also began to honor those who had died in all of Memorial Day a national holiday to be celebrated the last Monday in May. Today, Memorial Day is celebrated at Arlington National Cemetery with a ceremony in which a small American flag is placed on each grave. It is customary for the president or vice-president to give a speech honoring the contributions of the dead and lay a wreath at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier. More than 5,000 people attend the ceremony annually. The American Legion Post 129 in Huntsville will honor those who have served our country with a brief ceremony at each of the cemeteries in our area. The schedule is as follows: Liberty- 9:00 a.m.; Lower Eden- 9:30 a.m. Upper Eden- 10:00 a.m.; Mt. Green- 11:00 a.m.; Huntsville- 12:00 noon The American Legion Auxiliary will sponsor their Annual Pot Luck Luncheon at the Post, 604 S. 7800 E. in Huntsville immediately following the ceremonies at 12:30 p.m. Please bring a Pot Luck dish to add to our remembrance.
