Armistice Day Becomes Veterans Day

World War I officially ended on June 28, 1919, with the signing of the Treaty of Versailles. The actual fighting between the Allies and Germany, however, had ended seven months earlier with the armistice, which went into effect on the eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month in 1918. Armistice Day, as November 11 became known, officially became a holiday in the United States in 1926, and a national holiday 12 years later. On June 1, 1954, the name was changed to Veterans Day to honor all U.S. veterans.

About C.E.Robinson

I retired as a nurse practitioner in 2013, and became a full time novel writer. I added blogger in 2014 and created the blog site Before Sundown remember what made you smile. From the beginning, Before Sundown was honored with awards, and blog tours. I continue to be ever grateful, and appreciative of dedicated worldwide followers who like, comment, share and tweet posts. I started the blog to connect and support fellow bloggers, friends and family by writing blog posts about them--their books, interests, professions and travels. Overtime, I've added excerpts from WIPs as a co-author, and a final version (1/2020) of the first three pages of my book, Sunset Inn - wish you were here. Next, on to the publishing. The collections of sunsets/sunrises on the Welcome page came from bloggers all over the world. I wanted visitors to remember what made them smile Before Sundown. What better way than to offer them breathtaking sunsets or sunrises? http://cerobinsonauthor.com
