Day was officially proclaimed on May 5th 1868 by General John Logan,
national commander of the Grand Army of the Republic, and was first observed on May 30th 1868, when flowers were placed on the
graves of Union and Confederate soldiers at Arlington National Cemetery.
The first state to officially recognize the holiday was New York in
1873. By 1890 it was recognized by all of the northern states. After World War I the holiday changed from honoring just
those who died fighting in the Civil War to honoring Americans who died
fighting in any war. It is now celebrated in almost every State on the
last Monday in May.
The End of History will be closed today.

There is nothing quite like the fabulous vintage hand blown glass , the rare ceramics, and the marvelous mid-century modern furniture found at "The End of History". We opened our shop in Manhattan's West Village in 1997. Since then we have amassed more decorative objects from the 50's & 60's in one room than anywhere in the world. As a result we've become the go-to for top editors from magazines as well as a choice source to the best interior designers in the world. We will update this blog often... and as new publications come out and exciting new items hit our shelves!
