A Veterans Day Look Back at “The Great War”

In honor of Veterans Day, let’s take a look back at North Carolina’s involvement in World War I:

“North Carolinians and the Great War”

“‘North Carolinians and the Great War’ examines how World War I shaped the lives of different North Carolinians on the battlefield and on the home front as well how the state and federal government responded to war-time demands. The collection focuses on the years of American involvement in the war between 1917 and 1919, but it also examines the legacies of the war in the 1920s.”

You can also take a look at the following postcards from the World War I-era from the North Carolina Postcards digital project:
