While Memorial Day originally commemorated those who died in the US Civil War, during the Great War (World War I) focus began to shift to honoring all those killed during military service in all wars. The National Endowment for the Humanities' Division of Preservation and Access blog this week explores the Evolution of Memorial Day and tips for learning more about the topic in Chronicling America. As mentioned in the post, the Library also provides search tips and examples of articles from Chronicling America describing public celebrations and how the holiday developed over time, including the "Memorial Day--Its Origin" in the May 29, 1919 issue of the Jasper News (Jasper, MO). Check out these useful resources for searching the holiday’s history in Chronicling America's historic newspapers, and be sure follow us on Twitter @librarycongress #ChronAm!
