1918: Throngs of Chicagoans celebrate the Armistice — and the end of World War I — on Michigan Avenue

For this Memorial Day, Live From WFMT presents War Letters, an award-winning documentary WFMT created in 2001. The program was inspired by Andrew Carroll’s bestseller, War Letters: Extraordinary Correspondence from American Wars. Pulitzer prize-winning author Studs Terkel joins WFMT’s Lisa Flynn to share the most personal remembrances of war: letters sent home from the front by American soldiers, all of which were submitted by WFMT’s listeners from across Illinois.
