Armistice - 11 AM 11/11/1918

It was the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month in 1918 when the Armistice took effect, and the Great War in Europe officially ended. People celebrated in the streets and President Wilson of the United States declared that all draft calls were cancelled.

Even today, on the day now known as Veteran's Day, some will be standing at attention at 11am, facing East, to remember.
