War memorial

To mark Memorial Day in the United States, we present a postcard sent on Memorial Day circa 1910. (photo credit) It was a time for recollection of the losses of the Civil War now in its sesquicentennial. A time when Americans could not have imagined the global war soon to come, nor another that would follow, let alone the violence of this still-new century.
