Over Here: WWI Exhibit

 

Williamsburg…On June 19, the Stryker Center will open a new exhibition from the National Archives, Over Here: Americans at Home in World War I Special Exhibit from the National Archives. Because World War I was “total war,” the American home front was especially important to victory. Over Here: Americans at Home in World War I draws on the unparalleled holdings of the National Archives to capture the patriotic fervor of draft registration, the emotional good-byes of men leaving for training camps, the “hoopla” of Liberty Loan drives, the craze for volunteerism, and the violence of vigilantism. This exhibit runs through August 13.
