Memorial Day is not only the official start of the summer season.
It was originally called Decoration Day, with origins dating to Confederate women decorating the graves of their fallen loved ones. It is still a day to remember all the people who have died serving this country.
Happy Memorial Day from the Smithsonian Institution Libraries.
