Governor McMaster has officially declared November 11th 2018 as World War I Remembrance Day in South Carolina. Armistice Day, which coincides with Veterans Day, is commemorated every year on November 11 to mark the cessation of hostilities signed between the Allies and Germany at Compiègne, France. Guests will have the opportunity to see “11th Hour, 11th Day, 11th Month,” a temporary display at the Woodrow Wilson Family Home, which features an original WWI uniform, a painted Army helmet and trench art among other artifacts. The house will be open for guests to tour at their own pace, and guides will be available to answer any questions.
