In Sonny Boy Williamson’s song called “Decoration Day” he sings that his deceased wife asked him before she passed to bring flowers to her grave on every Decoration Day. Already a holiday of remembrance for the nearly half a million Civil War dead when the song was recorded in Aurora, IL in 1938, Sonny Boy’s wife asks him that he pay respects to her while he is at the graveyard on Decoration Day honoring the memory of our fallen soldiers. The years tick by, the number of fallen ‘warriors’ (in today’s parlance) rises unabated and we stand today – the …
