The history website notes that the federal holiday was originally known as Decoration Day. Americans began celebrating the holiday after the Civil War. But it didn’t become an official federal holiday until 1971.
The American Civil War ended in 1865. Since then, cities and towns across the United States have begun to hold mourning activities for the fallen soldiers in the spring. They lay flowers on the graves of soldiers and recite scriptures.
Interestingly, the Civil War called for the creation of some of the first national cemeteries in the United States.
