In our glorious fight for civil rights, we must guard against being fooled by false
slogans, as 'right-to-work.' It provides no 'rights' and no 'works.' Its purpose
is to destroy labor unions and the freedom of collective bargaining... We demand
this fraud be stopped.
Martin Luther King, Jr. quotes (American Baptist Minister and Civil-Rights Leader.
Memorial Day is a federal holiday which occurs every year on the final Monday of
May. Memorial Day is a day of remembering the men and women who died while serving
in the United States Armed Forces. Formerly known as Decoration Day, it originated
after the American Civil War to commemorate the Union and Confederate soldiers who
died in the Civil War. By the 20th century Memorial Day had been extended to honor
all Americans who have died while in the military service.
