Today in Legal History: Veterans’ Day

Veterans’ Day was originally known as Armistice Day. Armistice Day, proclaimed by President Wilson, commemorated the signing of an armistice on November 11, 1918, ending major hostilities between the Allied forces and Germany during World War I. In 1938 it was made an annual holiday and in 1954 the name was changed to Veterans’ Day, to honor veterans of all wars.
