STATE OF DELAWARE-EXECUTIVE DEPARTMENT-PROCLAMATION
The 166th anniversary of the death of Brigadier General Casimir Pulaski will be observed on the eleventh day of October this year.
The gallant deeds of General Pulaski at the seige of Savannah, Georgia will remain an inspiration to the people of America. We are ever mindful of our debt to him for the supreme sacrifice he made in our Nation's fight for freedom.
It is most fitting that we do honor to the memory of this illustrious hero and great friend of America.
NOW, THEREFORE, I, Walter W. Bacon, Governor of the State of Delaware, by virtue of the laws of this State do proclaim Thursday, October 11, 1945, as
GENERAL PULASKI'S MEMORIAL DAY
and I urge all Delawareans to honor the member of this great hero of the American Revolutionary War by the holding of appropriate exercises in our churches, schools, service organizations, and other groups, and I request that the American flag be displayed on public buildings and other suitable places.
IN TESTIMONY WHEREOF, I have set my hand and caused the Great Seal of the State of Delaware to be hereunto affixed at Dover, this eighth day of October in the year of our Lord one thousand nine hundred and forty-five, and of the Independence of the United States of America the one hundred and seventieth.
By the Governor:
WALTER W. BACON
WILLIAM J. STOREY, Secretary of State.
