Memorial Day , originally known as Decoration day, is a United States federal holiday which occurs every year on the final Monday of May, and is a day for remembering the men and women who died while serving in the United States Armed Forces.
Many speakers will stand before the gathered on this day around the country to express the livings appreciation and remembrance of those who died in the battle for freedom and justice throughout American history. Each presenter’s comments will vary in length and represent a wide range of speaking confidence and competence, but few will equal the eloquence and speaking mastery of a message as President Abraham Lincoln.
On November 19, 1863, on dedicating the Gettysburg National Cemetery, Lincoln paid tribute to the thousands that died in an effort to preserve the Union. His “Gettysburg Address” became the most famous and accomplished dissertation in history and remains unequaled to this day.
Junction hopes that you have a safe Memorial Day weekend!
