    It began in 1919, on the eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month -- the exact one-year anniversary of the end of World War I.  President Woodrow Wilson called it Armistice Day, a term some still use today, and commemorating that conflict remained the day’s focus for more than 30 years.
