Veterans Day - A Brief History


At the eleventh hour on the eleventh day of the eleventh month, 1918, fighting between the Allied Forces and Germany stopped, putting an end to the bloodshed of World War I per the terms of an armistice agreement signed in France the same day. But the “War to end all wars” did not officially end until seven months later.

On the one-year anniversary of the armistice agreement (Nov. 11, 1919), President Woodrow Wilson signed a proclamation commemorating November 11 as Armistice Day. The celebrations were to include parades, public meetings and a two-minute suspension of business at 11 a.m.
