This is a antique embossed postcard for Decoration Day (what we now call Memorial Day) that was mailed in 1915. It features a beautiful lady holding a tattered American flag and the shield with an eagle and star GAR or Grand Army of the Republic insignia is in the bottom left corner. It is in very good condition with light edge wear. It dates to an era when they were still remembering Civil War veterans, on both sides of the war, by decorating graves of the war dead with flowers, which is why Memorial Day was originally called Decoration Day. Decoration Day officially began in 1868, but it wasn't until after World War I that the day was expanded to honor those who have died in all American wars.

Please see the photos as they show the condition and detail well.
