    Default Real history: Memorial Day was born in struggle against the Klan

    Well this is definitely news to me! This is exactly why I like history. I love to learn about all the history we were NEVER taught in school!

    We must not forget that Memorial Day, which we celebrate on Monday, belongs to the foes of racism. The day people place flowers on the graves of fallen veterans was founded by the enemies of the Ku Klux Klan. Memorial Day belongs to the democratic traditions of the American people.

    It sprang out of the war against the hooded terrorists of the South who sought to re-establish slavery on American soil. American right-wingers and false patriots try to hide the real story of the birth of Memorial Day in 1868. At the time, Major General John A. Logan, the father of Memorial Day, was in the thick of the fight against the Ku Klux Klan when he issued the first call for May 30th celebrations.

    General Logan was the head of the Grand Army of the Republic, the first Civil War veterans’ association. He was one of the outstanding heroes of that four-year-long struggle.
