The "Tomb of the Unknown Soldier"
"We do not know the eminence of his birth, but we do know the glory of his death. He died for his country, and greater devotion hath no man than this."
- President Warren G. Harding, November 11, 1921
Those words were first spoken 100 years ago, following one of the bloodiest conflicts in human history, World War I. It was called The War to End All Wars because of the great destruction and slaughter its trench warfare caused. The widespread use of machine guns and rapid-firing artillery pieces on the Western Front meant that any exposed soldier was vulnerable. Protection from enemy fire could only be achieved by digging into the earth, and assaults were carried out across "No Man's Land" between the opposing trenches. Many of the thousands of soldiers who succumbed to enemy fire on foreign soil were never able to be identified and their remains returned to their loved ones. That’s why on Armistice Day 1921, President Harding dedicated a new memorial -- the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier -- at Arlington National Cemetery.
