The War Is Over

“The great world’s war is over at last.” On November 11, 1918, Streetsville residents wake to the ringing of bells and beating of drums and the streets are soon filled with celebration. Public services of thanksgiving are arranged and a “real good time” takes place in the Oddfellows’ Hall. According to The Review, “You never heard such rejoicing and probably never will again, for this is the last world war and militarism is a thing of the past.”
