In honor of soldiers and civilians who died in the war, Memorial Day was established in many countries in the United States and Britain. On the last Monday in May 2020, The Doodle on Google’s search engine home was greyed out again, with the flag of the United States of America attached to the bottom. The anniversary was originally scheduled for May 30, but after 1971, many states changed it to the last Monday in May to ensure that federal employees were allowed to take a holiday on the same day.
On Memorial Day, many people choose to visit national cemeteries and memorials. Although the main purpose is to make people forget about the soldiers and civilians who died in the First World War, its history dates back to the Civil War.
