On the morning of November 11, 1918, at 11:00 o'clock, the armistice was signed and the guns went silent along the Western Front The War to End All Wars had Ended. Calvin Coolidge would later recall the emotions of that November day What the end of the four years of carnage meant those who remember it will never forget and those who do not can never be told. The universal joy, the enormous relief, found expression from all the people in a spontaneous outburst of thanksgiving. With peace, they would happily return to building-up their own country with its great promise. By doing this, it was felt, they could best contribute to human progress and world peace. The Old Worldwith its national spirit of suspicion, distrust, and hatred of other nation was left to resolve its own problems, although not without American sympathy, encouragement, and assistance, especially, financial help. In short, a friendly hand reached out across the sea. America desired only, as Calvin Coolidge put it, understanding, good will, and friendly relations between ourselves and all other people
