In 1917, the United States entered World War I (1914-1918), a brutal conflict that took the lives of 116,000 Americans. Allied with France, England, and Russia against Germany and Austria, the presence of United States soldiers on the European battlefields shifted the war’s momentum in the Allies’ favor. On the eleventh hour, of the eleventh day, of the eleventh month of 1918, all of the participating nations signed an armistice ending the war.
