    Yep. I marched in the oldest continuous Memorial Day Parade today. The Detroit Fire Department started this tradition on the last weekend in May in 1863 to commemorate fallen fire fighters. It is still the reason we march from Engine Seven to Mt. Elliot or Elmwood Cemetery on alternating years. Detroit Fiemen's Fund have large plot in both cemeteries? There are hundreds of fallen fire fighters in each cemetery. 1863 was before Memorial Day or Decoration Day was named.
