Memorial Day Cards, c 1909

1909 is the year my Grandfather Cook was born. I thought I would share a couple of Memorial Day post cards from the year of his birth.

That we might enjoy liberty in a united republic, those whose bodies lie buried here died. Their devotion to country and posterity was a noble sacrifice

To day the thronging million troop / Where floats that standard in their view / And ours, dear Flag, the joy to stand / Beneath thee loyal to our Land
