The day the war officially ended with the Treaty of Versailles. The fighting ended 7 months prior at 11 o’clock on November 11th, 1918. Later called Armistice Day.
This day was meant to remember those who fought and died in World War I.
U.S., Armistice Day was eventually changed to Veterans Day by President Eisenhower.
This bill was signed to create three-day weekends for Federal employees on four national holidays: Washington’s birthday, Memorial Day, Veterans Day, and Columbus Day.
