Memorial Day was originally called Decoration Day. This explains the origins of its name and we can see where it came from by looking at how the day got its start.
In 1868, General John A. Logan declared that May 30 would be a day to decorate graves of soldiers who died fighting for their country. On this day, people gathered outdoors with flowers and plants to decorate military cemeteries with them as a sign of respect for those who fought in battle.
