How Veterans Day Started

 

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

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.”

Soldiers of the 353rd Infantry near a church at Stenay, Meuse in France, wait for the end of hostilities. This photo was taken at 10:58am, on November 11th, 1918, two minutes before the armistice ending World War I went into effect.
