Hoboken Veterans Day and World War I Armistice Day Observance
On a crisp sunny day at Elysian Park, approximately 100 people gathered in observance of Veterans Day and the 100th Anniversary of Armistice Day, the end of World War I.
Over 116,000 Americans died among 4.7 million in what was called The Great War, the predecessor to World War II. More than half the deaths came about due to disease with the terrible trench conditions and an influenza epidemic.
