ColumbiaDC | The First World War at 100! A Look Back and Lessons for Today

Washington, DC
On the eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month one hundred years ago, the armistice between Allies and Germany came into effect, ending hostilities in one of the bloodiest conflicts in the 20th century. This November 7th, the Columbia Club of Washington, DC will convene a panel to discuss the war and reflect on what it means for America and the world a century later. Join David Silbey, an expert on 20th century warfare, and Nicole Milano, an archivist and editor of a curriculum on the humanitarian activities of the war, at the Washington National Cathedral for a look back and discussion of lessons to be learned for today. Cosponsored with Princeton, Cornell, and Wharton Clubs of Washington.
