High Noon Talk: They Called Them Soldier Boys
May 1, 2019 12:00pm - 1:00pm
Explore the contributions of Texans in the Great War.
Held on the first Wednesday of every month, High Noon Talks highlight interesting and often untold topics through this casual lunch-time lecture.
In conjunction with the centennial of the Great War and the exhibition World War I America, join us for a talk on the Texas National Guard's Seventh Texas Infantry Regiment. Historian and author Gregory Ball will share some of his in-depth study of the Texas Seventh from his book, They Called Them Soldier Boys. Hear about some of the contributions of this unit, including the efforts of its Choctaw code-talkers in WWI and discover how the unit's recruitment and training reflected the mobilization effort on the Texas home front.
