Washington, D.C. – On May 5th, 1868, the head of an organization of Union veterans the Grand Army of the Republic (GAR) established Decoration Day as a time for the nation to decorate the graves of the war dead with flowers three years after the Civil War ended.
On May 30th, it was declared that Decoration Day should be observed by Major General John A. Logan.
