Yesterday my travels took me to Los Angles, California, via the Los Angeles Record dated November 7, 1918 . I found the big announcement “Peace! War Is Over”. “The allies and Germany signed an armistice at 11 o’clock this morning. Hostilities ceased at 2 o’clock this afternoon. the Americans took Sedan before the armistice became effective. Immediately upon the announcement by General Foch that the armistice terms were signed, orders were sent to all allied and German [field] commanders to stop fighting…”
This was a bit premature reporting as the the war would not officially end until four days later!
