This November 11th marks the 100th anniversary of the signing of the Armistice, bringing an end to “The War to End All Wars”. The treaty was signed on the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month in 1918.
For years people would stand at that time for a moment of silence to honor those who made the ultimate sacrifice. Over 3,000 Philadelphians made that sacrifice.
To commemorate this historic event and the contribution that Philadelphians made, I am bringing to Philadelphia a travelling exhibit that will include photographs of those who served from our area.
The exhibit will be here for two days – November 11th (the actual day) and November 12th. I am looking for sponsors and a site on the commercial corridor for the exhibit and for photos of those that served in the war.
