Decoration Day, 1923

Decoration Day, 1923. Caldwell, New Jersey

Did you know that Memorial Day used to be called Decoration Day? I sure didn’t! Not until I came across a set of pictures that had Decoration Day 1923 written on the back. In fact, it wasn’t until 1967 when it was officially declared Memorial Day by federal law!
