Given that Memorial Day started after the Civil War (or War of Northern Aggression if you live in the South), this seemed like an appropriate song to post. Of course, these days Memorial Day is more about grilling out and kicking off summer than remembering fallen soilders. I'd love write a long post bemoaning this fact, but I've got to be at a BBQ in an hour.
