World War I changed much of how we view conflicts and war.

“It was one of the most important events in history,” Conner Casteel (10) said.

When the news came in that Germany signed the proposed armistice, the world erupted with joy.

Citizens marched through their neighborhoods, welcoming back their friends and family from the trenches.

Crowds of people congregated at Trafalgar Square in London and in front of the White House in Washington, D.C.

The Great War, also known as World War I, was referred to as ‘the war to end all wars.’ It greatly affected the lives of many people around the world.

“My family had veterans on both sides. Some were fighting on the side of the Kaiser [the German forces], and some were fighting for America,” Casteel said.

When the war ended, people were elated. Today, people celebrate those who served as heroes that helped to shape the world into what it is today.

No matter how you look at it, the war was an important step in our history. It established new standards for conflict today as well as alliances between countries. It is important that we do not forget this part of our world’s history.

“Don’t forget about the war, it’s an important part of our history,” Casteel said.
