Decoration Day

I hope that everyone will take a few minutes from their run around the park, the barbeque grills, and the poolside shennanagans to remember what today is all about. In fact, Memorial Day was originally called Decoration Day, so I hope you will take an hour and listen to one of the best albums of our generation.

I owe the pastiche to the good Professor Kerr who has a very nice post about the history of the Decoration Day/Memorial Day vernacular.
