Memorial Day 2022

Summary:
Memorial Day 2022 Memorial Day is that most somber of national observances, in which we remember all those, of whatever race, creed, color, or nationality, who gave their lives so that government of the People, by the People, and for the People shall not perish from the Earth. In past years I have included photographs of famous Civil War and World War 1 and 2 graveyards, as well as Arlington National Cemetery. This year let me focus on several others who gave all in defense of the Republic. This is a photo of the 54th Massachusetts Infantry Regiment, the unit whose story was made into the 1999 Oscar winning movie “Glory:” The 54th suffered roughly 42% casualties, including the death of their commander, leading the failed Union assault
