This Veteran’s Day (originally known as Armistice Day) is the 100th anniversary of the end of the First World War. Although largely overshadowed by the Second World War that followed two decades later, World War I continues to have an impact on our world today.
Professor Jim Bissett and Associate Professor Mike Carignan from the Department of History and Geography will discuss the legacy of the war, particularly in Europe and the United States.
The presentation begins at 5:30 p.m. followed by refreshments and a reception at 6:30 p.m. Attendees will also be able to view the archival exhibit “Elon College and the First World War, 1914-1919”, on display in the University Archives Exhibit Area, just outside the entrance to the Archives.
