  • Veterans’ Day

    Do you know the origins of Veterans’ Day? November 11 originally marked the end of World War I. The armistice that ended the fighting in World War I was signed in Marshal Ferdinand Foch’s railroad car in France at 11:00 am on November 11, 1918. There were huge public celebrations in Paris, London, and in New York City, where more than a million Americans hurled ticker tape out their windows and danced in the street. In 1954, what had been known as Armistice Day became Veterans’ Day, a day to honor all veterans of foreign wars.
