Freedom and Sacrifice: The Unbreakable Bond of Memorial Day


Memorial Day is a time to honor and remember the military personnel who have made the ultimate sacrifice in service to their country; also symbolizes the unofficial start of the summer vacation season. But its significance goes beyond the beginning of summer. The connection between Memorial Day and the emancipation of enslaved people is deeply rooted in history. It is noted that the first Memorial Day was celebrated by freed, encaptured Africans and American natives in Charleston, South Carolina, as a testament to their newfound freedom and victory with Union soldiers to address the horrors of chattel slavery and child abuse. Where Black or dark-skinned human beings were deemed animals because of the pigmentation of their skin, which is a heresy against the word of God that states, "All men are created equal." President Abraham Lincoln issued the Emancipation Proclamation on January 1, 1863. Where all survivors of African Chattel Slavery became legally free and citizens, this classic connection serves as a powerful reminder of the historical significance of Memorial Day and its ties to the emancipation of slaves in the United States as well as all of the soldiers who sacrificed their time and life keeping America safe from dangers far and near.
