Wow. Today In History in the Nov. 11 Gazette had entries from 1620 through 2011. Not among them was an entry for:
1918: At 11 a.m., the Great War (World War I) ended after more than four years of fighting which took the lives of more than 16 million people, including nearly 120,000 Americans. On that one morning, while generals waited for the Armistice to go into effect, there were 11,000 more casualties, including nearly 2,700 killed — more than both sides would suffer on D-Day 26 years later.
