Looking Back to 1916: Memorial Day

From the June 1, 2016 MidWeek "Looking Back."

"Memorial Day exercises at Elmwood Cemetery in Sycamore will include flowers being placed on the soldiers' graves by members of the Sons of veterans.  A detail will also visit Mt. Carmel Cemetery and decoratye the graves of soldiers there.

"The people of DeKalb County generally are cordially invited to join with these various orders and the people of Sycamore in this tribute to the country's defenders and general patriotic demonstration."

I'm taking the Sons of Veterans here to refer to the Sons of Union Veterans as the United States had not yet entered World War I.
