The Civil War Museum located in Kenosha, WI, is like no other museum in the country. No current museum explores this war as seen and experienced on the home front, nor the connections between the home front and the battle front. Through technology, life-size dioramas and interactive engaging exhibits, visitors travel back in history to the social, political and economic influences that contributed to the Civil War.
A Veteran's Day Ceremony held at City Hall today honoring veterans. Following is the history of Veteran's Day:
World War 1 - known at the time as "The Great War" -- officially ended when the Treaty of Versailles was signed on June 28, 1919. However, fighting ceased seven months earlier when an armistice, or temporary cessation of hostilities between the Allied nations and Germany went into effect on the eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month. For that reason, November 11, 1918 is generally regarded as the end of "the war to end all wars."
