Anniversary of World War I
UNDATED (WKRC) -- Today marks the 100th anniversary of the start of one of the biggest, and deadliest wars in history, World War I.
On this day in 1914, Austria-Hungary declared war on Serbia after Archduke Franz Ferdinand was assassinated. The war spread throughout Europe, soon after, across the globe.
The United States tried to stay impartial, but hostilities with Germany led to America's declaration of war against that nation nearly three years later. World War I ended a year later in 1918.
