Waterloo sign

Memorial Day was first observed in Waterloo in the Finger Lakes Region on May 5, 1866, and is hence also known as "The Birthplace of Memorial Day." The friendship between General John Murray, a distinguished citizen of Waterloo, and General John A. Logan, who helped bring attention to the event nationwide, was likely a factor in the holiday's growth.
