Veterans Day

[From “Armistice Day.” Editorial. The New York Times, November 11, 1920.]

Then and now: the need to reinstate the United States “in the esteem of the world” by means of significant alliances.

I found this editorial a welcome contrast to the language of “swift triumph” and “unconquerable spirit” that ran through the observances of Armistice Day 1920.
