 This event has already occurred.

Status: Archived  
The First World War, the Great War, the “war to end all wars” – all names for a conflict that plunged the world into chaos, triggered major political change, and involved millions of citizens. On November 11, the world will commemorate the centennial of the armistice that ended fighting and honor the millions of soldiers and civilians who died in World War I.

Join us for a guided walking tour that recognizes the contributions and sacrifices of Oakland Cemetery residents involved in World War I. Meet soldiers who fought in trenches on the Western Front, engineers and military staff who sustained battlefield efforts, and civilians who supported the troops from the home front.

The guided walking tour will begin at 10:00 AM at Oakland Cemetery’s Visitors Center. At 11:00, we will end the tour by ringing the Bell Tower bell 11 times as part of a nationwide bell-tolling to honor the sacrifice and service of veterans of the Great War, and all veterans.

Tickets must be purchased in advance. All proceeds benefit the restoration of veteran graves at Oakland Cemetery. Tickets on sale October 11.

Adults: $12
