The first national Memorial Day occurred in 1868, but was called Decoration Day. The day honored those who died in the Civil War. The name of the holiday was eventually changed, and its scope widened to include all wars. Then in 1971, it was moved to the last Monday in May.
To recognize this solemn day of remembrance to fallen soldiers, Memorial Day, Shrapnel Games is running our annual sale event. From today thru May 28th, all wargame offerings from Shrapnel Games are being heavily discounted.
All wargaming titles are included! These include:
