Those who served and died in the United States armed forces will be remembered this weekend.
Memorial Day, originally called Decoration Day, was begun to commemorate Confederate and Union soldiers who died in the Civil War.
The holiday was first observed on May 30, 1868, by order of Gen. John Logan, when flowers were placed on the graves of Confederate and Union soldiers in Arlington National Cemetery.
Now we honor American men and women who have died in all wars.
