A crowd of thousands--men, women, and children--listen to a woman speak at a podium in the distance. The stage she is on is decorated in a patriotic theme, inspired by the American flag. Behind her, dozens of men sit on the same stage. Further back, behind a copse of trees is a building. This event was both an Armistice Day service and a rally for the decreased financial capitalization of warfare.
