but it started out as a Memorial day for all Yankee dead from the War of Northern Agression.

General Bastiani, sir,

I believe that you meant to say "the War to Suppress Southern Arrogance"

November 11 was originally Armistice Day in the states, marking the end of WWI. Later it became Veteran's day paying tribute to all veterans. Memorial Day was set aside to pay tribute to those who died in war.
