Memorial Day is a somber remembrance for those who died while serving their country. The day was first observed in the wake of the Civil War, where local communities organized tributes around the grave sites of fallen soldiers. The observation was originally called Decoration Day because the graves were adorned with flowers and flags. After WWI, the day shifted to remember those who had perished in all of America's conflicts. Over the next few decades, the day transitioned from being called Decoration Day to its current name of Memorial Day. The remembrance was held on May 30th until 1971 when the Uniform Monday Holiday Act, established Memorial Day as the last Monday in May and a Federal Holiday. The 1967 image is of the Memorial Day ceremony held at Oak Grove Cemetery.

Timeline PhotosOn this day in 1945, Lauren Bacall and Humphrey Bogart got married at Malabar Farm near Lucas, Ohio. The farm was owned by Louis Bromfield, a prolific novelist, a screenwriter and conservationist. He cultivated a glamorous circle of friends from Hollywood and the literary world, many of which regularly visited Malabar Farm.

Despite the couple’s high profile, the wedding was informal and small. Bacall and Bogart both wore simple suits and just a handful of close family and friends were in attendance. The couple met and fell in love a year earlier on the set of their first of four movies together, "To Have and Have Not." Today, Malabar Farm is a state park and you can still visit the spot where the two were married.
