Memorial Day in Chicopee

Girls leading the Memorial Day procession in Chicopee, Massachusetts, May 31, 1920.

On this memorial day, the town unveiled a monument “In Memorium of the World War.” Note the “the,” with no expectations of a second World War in 1920.

Massachusetts has hosted some fine parades in its day. A huge collection of beautiful photos in the Digital Commonwealth project.
