KNOW YOUR HISTORY: Memorial Day was started by former slaves on May, 1, 1865 in Charleston, SC to honor 257 dead Union Soldiers who had been buried in a mass grave in a Confederate prison camp. They dug up the bodies and worked for 2 weeks to give them a proper burial as gratitude for fighting for their freedom. They then held a parade of 10,000 people led by 2,800 Black children where they marched, sang and celebrated.

1865 | THE FIRST EVER MEMORIAL DAY... was celebrated on May 1, 1865 in CHARLESTON, SOUTH CAROLINA by FORMER African-American SLAVES. In the recognition of the 150th anniversary of the American Civil War, let us not forget that freed slaves created Memorial Day. Let us remember that their prayers and observations were not just for the deceased Union soldiers on that first Memorial Day, but also for members of their families and their community who died in a war that was meant to free them.

Confederate officials initially argued that slaves best served the Southern cause by staying on the plantation. As few white Southerners volunteered for noncombatant military duty, however, the Confederate congress impressed the labor of free blacks and slaves in 1864, angering slaveholders.
