The definition of armistice is the cessation of hostilities. The most significant armistice to all Americans was signed at 5 a.m. Nov. 11, 1918, ending World War I after four years of conflict.
This armistice was an order for all firing to cease and the laying down of all arms. All over the world there were many demonstrations, blowing of whistles and impromptu parades. Many businesses closed their doors as the world rejoiced for the ending of "the war to end all wars."
