A Brief History of Veterans Day

Veteran’s Day, also known as Armistice Day, has a rich history that dates back to 1918. On the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month in 1918, an armistice, or temporary cessation of hostilities, was declared between the Allied nations and Germany during World War II. In that era, World War II was known as “the Great War.” Celebrated and commemorated as “Armistice Day” beginning the following year, November 11th was officially recognized as a National holiday by the United States federal government in 1938. In the aftermath of World War II and the Korean War, Armistice Day became Veterans Day, which was deemed a National holiday dedicated to the veterans of all American wars.
