Memorial Day is an American federal holiday observed on the last Monday of May. Formerly known as Decoration Day, it commemorates U.S. service members who died while on active duty.

First enacted to honor union and confederate soldiers following the Civil War, it was extended after World War I to honor Americans who have died in all wars.
