Journalist and author John Nichols will be the main speaker at an Armistice Day event on Saturday, Nov. 11, at 7 p.m. in the Milwaukee City Hall Rotunda, 200 E. Wells St. The event is free and open to the public.
The event is a reminder that Nov. 11 – now a day to honor veterans – was established as a day to promote world peace. World War I, the “war to end all wars” ended on the 11th hour on the 11th day of the 11th month of 1918. Twenty million soldiers and civilians had been killed.
