Book Description: According to the Veteran's Administration, at least 25 cities across America claim to have originated the Memorial Day holiday. As a result, numerous historians feel that the true history may never be known. This book rejects that claim and explores the factual history of the holiday and shows that most of the better-known stories are mere myths. Years of painstaking research reveal a story that was well known for decades but lost in a proliferation of local legends in the late 19th and early 20th centuries.

Book Description: A History of Memorial Day is a study of how Memorial Day was viewed by many Americans as a vehicle of both national and international unity. However, this study also examines the surprising amount of controversy elicited by the celebration of Memorial Day, finding that a substantial number of Americans value Memorial Day more as a holiday from work and an occasion for recreation and relaxation than as a time to honor the country's fallen heroes.
