(Undated) — Sunday is the 100th anniversary of the end of World War One. November 11th, 2018 marks the centenary of the “war to end all wars.” The conflict that claimed the lives of more than 16 million people officially came to an end when French, British and German leaders signed an armistice in 1918. The signing took place in a forest in France on the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month. In the U.S., “Armistice Day” became a legal holiday in 1938. Congress later changed it to Veterans Day to honor American veterans of all wars.
