Here are six colorfully illustrated Memorial Day postcards from the early 1900s, many featuring the art of Ellen Clapsaddle.

Love, trust & peace

“May thy sweet blossom never cease to bloom in love and trust and peace.”

Garlands for the fallen

“Strew the fair garlands where slumber the dead.”

Never forgotten

“Nor shall their story be forgot”

Remember your friends

We’ve read about the heroes from old Greece and Rome, but the one we’d like to hear from is the one from home.

No stain

“Wherever it floats, on land or sea, no stain its honor mars.”

Freedom smiles

“Freedom smiles, her fate secure, beneath its steadfast stars.”
