Memorial Day in Joplin

An illustration in a 1907 Joplin newspaper celebrating Memorial Day.  True to the holiday’s origins, it’s a sketch of a Civil War veteran.  Joplin had a unit of the Grand Army of the Republic and was home to a number of Civil War veterans.  We at Historic Joplin thank all our veterans for their service.
