THE MEMORIAL ASSOCIATION OF THE GRAND ARMY OF THE REPUBLIC, OF COOK COUNTY, ILLINOIS Constitution and By-laws On June 15, 1887, the Grand Army of the Republic Memorial Association of Cook County, Illinois, was incorporated, with the following persons as charter members : John C. Meetings The Association shall hold at least one regular meeting in the months of February, March, April, May and June of each year.

Officers All members of the Association in good standing shall be eligible to any office except the office of Commander which shall be held by a member of the Grand Army of the Republic only.

The noble work of decorating the graves of all soldiers of all wars in America and its island possessions will no doubt be more thorough each year as time passes with the aid of the Spanish War veterans and the members of the American Legion. In Chicago, the soldiers and citizens, on the last Sunday in May, 1867, visited the cemeteries and strewed flowers on the soldiers' graves. Logan, Comiuander-in- Chief of the Grand Army of the Republic, issued an order that the 30th of May of each year should be designated as a day for the decoration of the soldiers' graves, with such observances as each Grand Army Post might think suitable. They banish our anger forever When tbey laurel the graves of our dead! Waiting the Judgment Dav ; Love and tears for the Bhie, Tears and love for the Grav." — F. It will also be of vast importance to future generations and the descend- ants of those who fought in all the wars of our country who are interred in the county.

The graves of soldiers will also be remembered in all nations w^here sleeps an American soldier.
