100 years ago today, on November 11, 1918, the Armistice was signed to end World War I. “It is not now possible to assess the consequences of this great consummation. We know only that this tragical war, whose consuming flames swept from one nation to another until all the world was on fire, it is at an end,” said President Woodrow Wilson in his address to Congress marking the occasion. Enter the title in #QuickSearch to read the entire speech!

From now through #ArmisticeDay, @rutgers_scua is featuring the stories of Rutgers alums who served in #WW1 on their blog. . November 11, 2018 is the 100th anniversary of the Armistice that ended World War I. To commemorate this anniversary, the What Exit? blog will be featuring letters from Special Collections and University Archives' Records of the Rutgers College War Service Bureau. This collection features letters from Rutgers students and alumni who served in the First World War, describing their experiences serving in the United States and overseas. Between November 1 and 11, Voices of the Armistice posts will share what these Rutgers students from 100 years ago had to say about the moment when peace was declared. . Joseph K. Folsom, Rutgers College 1913, was stationed in Georgia on November 11, 1918 and described a “Kind of super-Halloween celebration” with a noisy parade and “general hilarity.” Harry Blue, RC1918, who was stationed in France, described taking a swooping celebratory flight in which he “missed electrical wires by inches.” . The Rutgers War Service Bureau was formed in 1917 as a way to keep Rutgers men serving in the war in touch with Rutgers and each other. Thanks to a grant from the New Jersey Historical Commission, the letters are now available online. Head over to our website to learn more. . #Rutgers #RutgersLibraries #RutgersU #NJ #NewJersey #LibrariesofInstagram #WW1 #WW1NJ #Armistice #VeteransDay
