Information on the background of Memorial Day... first known as Decoration Day.

To help re-educate and remind Americans of the true meaning of Memorial Day, the "National Moment of Remembrance" resolution was passed on Dec 2000 which asks that at 3 p.m. local time, for all Americans "To voluntarily and informally observe in their own way a Moment of remembrance and respect, pausing from whatever they are doing for a moment of silence or listening to 'Taps." - From 

A wonderful unit study on Patriotic Holidays by Amanda Bennett- free sample.
