Memorial Day is a day of remembering the men and women who died while serving in the United States Armed Forces. Formerly known as Decoration Day, it originated after the American Civil War to commemorate the Union and Confederate soldiers who died. By the 20th century, Memorial Day had been extended to honor all Americans who have died in all wars. It marks the unofficial start of the summer vacation season.

  • Pennsylvania had a 2.08% income tax rate in 1973 and currently, it is 3.07%.
  • Greg “The Bull” Luzinski led the 1973 Phillies with 29 home runs and 97 RBI’s. Michael Jack Schmidt was second with 18 homers and 52 RBI’s.
  • The 1972-73 76ers finished the season with a 9–73 record, earning the nickname from the skeptical Philadelphia media of the "Nine and 73-ers." They finished an NBA-record 59 games behind the Atlantic Division champion Boston Celtics. This year, they swept the Brooklyn Nets in four games of the first round of the playoffs and open the second round series in May. What a difference 50 years can make.
