Following the American Civil War, Memorial Day began in small communities across America, which recognized those soldiers who gave the ultimate sacrifice. Following the war, Senator John A. Logan, a former Union officer on Major General William T. Sherman's staff, was instrumental in making this Federal legislation possible. Join American soldiers of all time periods with a "United States Military Through the Ages" memorial program. Admission is free, and open to the public. Donations are graciously accepted.
