Under General John J. Pershing’s command, two million American soldiers helped break the stalemate in Europe and won the war for the Allies in WWI. The desk from Pershing’s war room sits before a full-size reproduction of the wall map on which he tracked troop movements, showing troop locations on the western front the day Armistice was reached.
