The origins of Mother’s Day are pretty interesting. Some correlate Mothers Day beginning when mothers from the north and south, who lost their sons in the Civil War, would hold meetings in the 1870’s & 1880’s.  Other origins point to Michigan where on May 13, 1877 a dispute between the temperance and anti-temperance movement began in Albion, Michigan and people rose up to honor a mother who was involved.
