Blake: Veteran’s Day Parades

History:

The 11th day, 11th month, at the 11th hour in 1918, marked an armistice until the Treaty of Versailles was signed. In 1926, a presidential proclamation made November 11 the official federal legal holiday commemorating Armistice Day.

After World War II and the Korean War, by 1954, the US had even more Veterans, and Armistice Day was changed to Veterans Day.  Some changes were made to the day and for a period of time, it was designated as the fourth Monday in October, but changed back to November 11.
