Bells of Peace initiative that will occur cross the state as part of the Armistice Day Centennial

Event Description

Bells will toll in unison across North Carolina and throughout the world at 11 a.m. November 11 to commemorate the centennial of Armistice Day.

 When the Armistice ending World War I was signed on November 11, 1918 at 11 a.m., bells rang in celebration around the world. To celebrate the 100th anniversary of the Armistice, the N.C. Department of Natural and Cultural Resources has encouraged local history groups and community organizations to ring bells 21 times at 11 a.m., Sunday, November 11. We hope many local churches and other organizations will make plans to participate.
