November 11, 1921


At the 11th hour on the 11th day of the 11th month of 1918, the Great War ends. At 5 a.m. that morning, Germany, bereft of manpower and supplies and faced with imminent invasion, signed an armistice agreement with the Allies in a railroad car outside Compiégne, France.

Three years later at Arlington National Cemetery, the body of an unidentified American soldier felled in Europe during World War I was the first buried in the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier.

“Here Rests in Honored Glory an American Soldier Known but to God.”
