Monday is Memorial Day. Americans observe the last Monday of May, honoring the men and women who died while serving in the U.S. military.

Originally known as Decoration Day, it originated in the years following the Civil War and became an official federal holiday in 1971. Many Americans observe Memorial Day by visiting cemeteries or memorials, holding family gatherings and participating in parades. Unofficially, it marks the beginning of the summer season.

Each year on Memorial Day a national moment of remembrance takes place at 3:00 p.m. local time.

On Saturday, a remembrance ceremony was held at the downtown memorial in Manchester. The event was hosted by the local veterans’ organizations.

Speakers spoke to those who gathered to never forget military members that perished while fighting for the freedom we enjoy in America.
