Memorial Day is a national observance recognizing all who have died in service to the Nation. It began as an informal nation-wide observance 152 years ago. To commemorate this day, the National Purple Heart Hall of Honor is offering a presentation on the American Civil War origins and meaning of Memorial Day to provide a better understanding of and appreciation for this holiday. The presentation will be held on Temple Hill in conjunction with the Memorial Day activities at the New Windsor Cantonment.
