Memorial Day - Time To remember

I just want to thank all who have served over the years. Who gave so much to guarantee we can live in a free country.
These are antique postcards for Memorial Day.


Memorial Day 1890s California Civil War Veterans



World War I


This dates to around the 1930s. The sentiment reads:
That we might enjoy liberty in a United Republic
Those bodies whose bodies lie buried here have died.
Their devotion to Country and Posterity 
was a noble sacrifice.



And an Eleanor Clapsaddle design from 1904:
Nor shall their story be forgot
While fame her record keeps

Tutorial to make at OakieDoodle



My heartfelt thanks to each one, 
and may God Bless you.
