Veterans Day,  November 11, was originally called Armistice Day to observe the end of World War I in 1918, but today, November 11 is an annual national holiday expanded to honor those who have served in the armed forces of the United States.

The “History of the American Soldier” is a living timeline of American military history. This program will give visitors an opportunity to learn about several periods of this nation’s military history from the early European settlement to the recent era. Visitors are urged to interact with the soldiers to learn about their uniforms, equipment, and weaponry, and the period that they represent.
