What conflict inspired Memorial Day?
A American Civil War
B World War I
C World War II
A few Southern municipalities began memorializing their Civil War dead before the war was even over. In the years that followed the conflict, observances were held throughout the country, and in 1868, General John A. Logan of the Union Army called for a national day of remembrance to be held on May 30. The date was chosen because it was not the anniversary of any particular battle.
The correct answer is American Civil War.
