  • Description

    Full title reads: "ARMISTICE DAY IN THE U.S."

    Washington D. C., United States of America (USA).

    American President Franklin Delano Roosevelt and army chiefs paying homage at the tomb of the unknown warrior at Arlington cemetery at Armistice Day. President Roosevelt speaking: "I, for one, do not believe that the era of democracy in human affairs can or ever will be, snuffed out, in our lifetime. I, for one, do not believe that the world will revert either to a modern form of ancient slavery or control vested in modern feudalism or modern emperors or modern dictators or modern oligarchs in these days. I, for one, do believe that the very people under their iron heels will themselves rebel."
