Veterans Day’s Beginnings

 

U.S. Department of Veterans AffairsWashington, D.C. – The Treaty of Versailles was signed on June 28th, 1919, in the Palace of Versailles outside the town of Versailles, France officially ended World War I, also known as “The Great War”.

However, fighting ceased seven months earlier when an armistice, or temporary cessation of hostilities, between the Allied nations and Germany went into effect on the eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month. For that reason, November 11th, 1918, is generally regarded as the end of “the war to end all wars.”
