An epic and poignant large allegorical preparatory painting by Eugene Savage for the mural titled "Armistice," which was created for and still resides in the front reception room at The Elks Veteran Memorial in Chicago's Lincoln Park neighborhood. At the opening reception in 1926, Arthur Correy, the then president of the National Society of Mural Painters, called these works the most important event in the history of American mural painting. Savage was awarded the Gold Medal of Honor in 1929 by the Architectural League of New York.
