When Cadillac went to war


An elderly veteran of the Great War is being honored in the nation's capital. That may seem impossible, given that World War I ended nearly a century ago, but given that this veteran is made of steel and iron rather than flesh and blood, it's understandable. The honoree is an automobile, a 1918 Cadillac Type 57, and it's one of five vehicles being displayed on the National Mall in Washington, D.C., this spring by the Historic Vehicle Association. All are listed in the National Historic Vehicle Register, an archive of significant vehicles within the Library of Congress.
