It has been called THE GREAT WAR and THE WAR TO END ALL WARS. We know it as WORLD WAR I. It began in 1914 and ended with an armistice at the eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month in 1918. On April 6, 1917, the United States

Congress declared war upon the German Empire because of their increasing aggression towards our interests. The cost...37 million casualties, including 117,000 soldiers lost their lives and 205,000 wounded. More than four million American families sent their sons and daughters to serve in uniform during the "Great War".

World War I remains America’s forgotten war, even though more Americans gave their lives during that war than during Korea and Vietnam combined, and even though it profoundly shaped the rest of “the American century.”
