For your Armistice Day viewing pleasure, C-SPAN3 this weekend has some appropriate programs. Here’s the link to the channel in case I get the information wrong:
Beginning at 9:05 a.m CT on Friday, November 11 (and repeating at 9:05 p.m.), they will show a 1921 silent film of the Unknown Soldier being borne from France to Arlington. This will be followed by a tour of WWI artifacts at the Woodrow Wilson House in Washington. It will wrap up with the four-minute audio of Wilson’s 1923 Armistice Day address.
On Saturday there will be a discussion of sea power in WWI at 7:00 p.m. CT. At 9:00 p.m. the unknown Soldier film will be shown again, followed by Michael Neiberg discussing the U.S. entry into WWI, and a repeat of the sea power discussion.
For further programming on Sunday, please check the schedule.
