Stonewall Jackson was an amazing fighter, and Robert E Lee was a man who was greatly respected on both sides of the coin. Honestly though the first Memorial Day was recognized by a man named Freedmen who was a freed slave in Charleston, South Carolina in 1865 to honor the Union dead in the Civil War, after WWI it was extended to encompass all the fallen. It just put's things in perspective of what it may have felt like back then it was originally called Decoration day. I just thought I would share how I felt. My cousin is with the 5th Stryker's he lost 20 guy's in Afghanistan and had to read every name at roll call after. I honor every man and woman that put's on the uniform and I will never ever forget those that fell.
