Memorial Day 1922

[“Whole City to Pay Honor to War Dead: Ceremonies Planned Today for Every Part of New York, with Fair Weather Predicted.” The New York Times, May 30, 1922.]

Another Times article (May 28, 1922) notes that forty-nine widows of men who fought in the War of 1812 were still then living, as were seventy-three veterans of the Mexican-American War (1846–1848).
