Sponsored by: Federation of NC Historical Societies, NC Department of Natural & Cultural Resources, and Office of Archives and History
Local Sponsor: Mount Airy Museum of Regional History
We volunteered to promote this remembrance in our area. Bells across the United States will be ringing along with ours. Reach out to every group and individual around you.
Historical: “The eleventh month, the eleventh day, the eleventh hour” November 11, 1918
Our Date: November 11, 2018 at 11:00am. SUNDAY morning
What you should do: Ring bells across the State of North Carolina in churches, schools, courthouses, on steam engines, on fire trucks, on farms, even ring the bell to bring your family to the dinner table. “If it has a clapper and can be rung: let’s ring it!”
Other ideas: - Honor all veterans, their families and groups for their sacrifice for our nation - Remember the World War I CENTENNIAL ARMISTICE - Read names of World War veterans - Take a moment of silence to remember the 8.2 million dead of that war - Pray for Peace - Enjoy patriotic songs
Historical Facts: Soldiers of Allied divisions came out of their trenches and met the soldiers of the enemies across the no man’s land between the trenches at that exact hour. All soldiers celebrated the end of this “war to end all wars” and its horrors.
The Mount Airy Museum of Regional History thanks you for this historical remembrance!
