The 100th anniversary of Armistice Day is coming up, which is what we know as Veterans Day. Armistice Day is when the Allies and Germany signed to end World War I. 


To help celebrate and teach some history McLean County History Museum of History is hosting a program with a local historian and retired lawyer Guy Fraker. Fraker will present a program about the experiences of one World War I soldier, his uncle Harry “Hal” Holliday, says Director of Education at the McLean County Museum of History Candace Summers.

Holliday was from the Peoria area, and this program is to commemorate all veterans.

The program is free to the public and will take place on Tuesday, November 13 at 7:00 p.m. in the Museum’s second-floor courtroom. For more information about this program, you can contact the Education Department at education@mchistory.org or by phone at 309-827-0428.
