LEGISLATIVE  RESOLUTION commending the Village of Waterloo, New York, as
the Federally-designated birthplace of Memorial Day

WHEREAS, In the course of the evolving development of this Empire State,
certain communities have endured and exist  today  as  evidence  of  the
proud heritage of this State and Nation; and
  WHEREAS,  Established  in  1864, the Village of Waterloo has a partic-
ularly vibrant heritage and holds claim  to  a  number  of  historically
significant events in the progression of this State and Nation; and
  WHEREAS, Most notably, the Village of Waterloo is proud to have Feder-
al designation as the birthplace of Memorial Day; and
  WHEREAS,  This National Holiday, celebrated the last Monday during the
month of May, was first observed over one hundred years ago in Waterloo,
New York; and
  WHEREAS, Each Memorial Day our Nation  remembers  those  veterans  who
served  in our Armed Forces with a special remembrance to those who made
the ultimate sacrifice; and
  WHEREAS, In remembering our deceased veterans, we recall their courage
and patriotism which, throughout more than 200 years of the existence of
the United States, have served to preserve our most  precious  freedoms;
now, therefore, be it
  RESOLVED,  That  this  Legislative  Body pause in its deliberations to
commend the Village of Waterloo, New York, as  the  Federally-designated
birthplace of Memorial Day; and be it further
  RESOLVED, That a copy of this Resolution, suitably engrossed, be tran-
