Program Details

To commemorate the centennial of WWI join Dr. Scott Wolford for look at how the Great War, and the collective mobilization to support the war effort, was experienced here at home. Combining perspectives on the trajectory of the War on the battlefield with day-to-day efforts on the home front, this discussion will shine a light on the contributions and sacrifices of everyday Americans.
