Veterans Day

[“Nation Rejoices at War’s End; City Is Jubilant: All America, With Pealing Bells and Parades, Celebrates Germany’s Defeat. Shut Courts And Schools. Exchanges and Offices Close and Workers by Thousands Acclaim Victory. City Is Ablaze at Night. Salvation Army Holds Solemn Service at Library Steps — Mayor Leads City Employes’ Demonstration.” The New York Times, November 12, 1918.]

Today is Veterans Day, first called Armistice Day. One hundred years ago today, “the war to end war,” as it was called, ended.

[Employes: that’s how the Times spelled it.]
