A World War I Centennial Armistice Remembrance
The tolling of bells is a traditional expression of honor and remembrance. A century ago, 4.7 million American sons and daughters put on the uniform to serve our nation and the world in World War I. On the 11th hour, of the 11th day of the 11th month in 1918, an armistice to the fighting was declared. We will toll the bells of St. James at 11am on Nov. 11 in remembrance of the Armistice.
