Let’s go to a Memorial Day Parade in the 1920s!

I think they were probably still calling it Decoration Day when they filmed this parade back in the 1920s, but it is what would eventually become Memorial Day. The poster of this video says this is in Cornwall, NH. I cannot find a Cornwall in New Hampshire, but I did find a Cornish, NH. I wonder if that is the place? If so, do they still have a parade going? I hope it looks half as cool now as it did back then.

Are you still here? Why are you reading this? Get outside today and have some fun on the end of this 3 day weekend.

Happy Memorial Day!


Oh and who is this guy? Old Vet?
