From Memorial Days Past

I love vintage postcards. Below are a few that were designed to observe what would eventually become Memorial Day. The majority of these are from the early 1900s, when the day was still known as Decoration Day and was largely used as a time to honor those who lost their lives in their Civil War. These postcards were not only meant to pay tribute to those who made the ultimate sacrifice but also to remind us that the promise of peace is the best way to honor their memories.

Have a look:
