Announcement: Special call meeting at Dermott City Hall at 5pm on May 30th.

History: Memorial Day is a federal holiday in the United States for remembering the people who died while serving in the countryโ€™s armed forces. From the beginning of the Civil War, President Lincoln argued that the Union forces were not fighting to end slavery but to prevent the disintegration of the United States. For abolitionists, however, ending slavery was the reason for the war, and they argued that black people should be able to join the fight for their freedom. However, African Americans were not allowed to serve as soldiers in the Union Army until January 1, 1863. On that day, the Emancipation Proclamation decreed that โ€œsuch persons [that is, African-American men] of suitable condition, will be received into the armed services of the United States.โ€

FYI.... Dermott District Court and Dermott City Hall will be closed on Monday, May 28th in observation of Memorial Day! Offices will resume normal working hours on Tuesday, May 29th.

MEMORIAL DAY! Memorial Day is dedicated to the memory of all U. S. Armed forces who have died while serving their country. Memorial Day was originally known as Decoration Day. It is celebrated every last Monday of May and has been a federal holiday since 1967. With that being said, most businesses will be closed on Monday, May 28th and there will be travelers from near & far. We ask that everyone adhere to all traffic rules and regulations. We want everyone to enjoy their family and friends. Have a great 3 day weekend!
