Facts about Memorial Day:

- The first Decoration Day was held on May 30, 1868 because there was no battle fought on that day.
- The Uniform Monday Holiday Act in 1968 changed the date to the last Monday in May.
- Memorial Day was declared a federal holiday in 1971.
- Don’t forget about the moment of silence at 3 pm. It’s the law since 2000.
