Veterans Day: The Forgotten History of America's Veterans Day and What It Commemorates
On this episode of The Resistance Library Podcast, Sam and Dave discuss Veterans Day. Veterans Day, celebrated each year on November 11th, was first celebrated on this same date in 1919, under the name of Armistice Day. The holiday was named in remembrance of the temporary ceasefire that brought about the unofficial end to World War I when, the year before, the Allied forces entered into an armistice with the Germans, stopping live battle on the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month of 1918.
