Buy a memorial poppy

The armistice that brought an end to “War to End All Wars” was concluded at the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month of 1918. To honor the dead, handmade poppies—simulating the flower that covered so many of the battle fields—were sold to the public. Since then, the poppy has been worn in honor of all who have laid down their life in the service of our country. Please help us honor the dead—and raise funds to help the wounded—by buying one of our beautiful hand–knitted poppies. They are on sale in the Cadwalader Room, priced at $5 each.
