Now all roads lead to France and heavy is the tread
Of the living; but the dead returning lightly dance.

An Invitation to Roads to the Great War Readers

In you can't attend and would like to stream the event, here's some information on how to do so from the Centennial Commission.


On Thursday 9 November at 11 a.m. EST the U.S. World War I Centennial Commission @WW1CC will host a ceremonial groundbreaking for America’s World War I Memorial to engage the American people in remembering our veterans from WWI. Watch a live stream of the groundbreaking through Facebook Live at

The ceremony will have distinguished leaders, well-known guest speakers, and music from the U.S. Army’s “Pershing’s Own” Brass Quintet. The groundbreaking shovels will turn soil from the memorial site and from the Meuse-Argonne.
