Vintage Memorial Day Postcard (Stash Sunday)

This week’s Stash Sunday theme is Memorial Day. I purchased this postcard (dated 1908) recently on EBAY (with the idea of using it to embellish a patriotic Santa).

What we now celebrate as Memorial Day used to be called Decoration Day and began shortly after the American Civil War when flowers were placed on the graves of soldiers to honor them.
