Friday, May 29 1908 -- Decoration Day is observed by Herriman in this touching cartoon that references the literal decoration of graves, the activity for which the holiday was named.
Decoration Day is the original name of Memorial Day, and used to be observed on May 30 each year, rather than the last Monday of May.

were signed Teddy, Ted, and H.T.Elmo which are identified as psuedonym for Jack Kirby. I have many antique cartoon printing plates of these cartoons. In addition I have other plates believed to be part of the Lincoln Features, such as Sally Snickers, Rhyming Romeos, Useless Eustace, and It's Amazing. Although I believe most of these were created by Jack Kirby it is difficult, as you commented in the past, to find records on Lincoln Features. I can send you images of any of these cartoons that I listed which may aid in your wide expansion of knowledge and information on the Lincoln Features and H.T.Elmo. Please provide me with an email that I can send images too if we can exchange background on the above. Mine is firstname.lastname@example.org
I appreciate your time regarding this research. Thanks, Joe
