Fact of the Week: November 11, 2015

In 1919, Armistice Day was created by President Wilson to remember the end of WWI. Later in 1934, an Act approved on May 13, 1938, made the 11th of November in each year a legal holiday—a day dedicated to the cause of world peace. After WWII, in 1954, Armistice was replaced with Veteran, to honor those who had served.
