Tour leaders: Ryan Reft, Library of Congress and Sahr Conway-Lanz, Library of Congress
Echoes of the Great War: American Experiences of World War I examines the upheaval of world war as Americans confronted it at home and abroad. Drawing on the Library of Congress’s extensive multi-format collections on World War I, the exhibition considers the debates and struggles that surrounded US engagement; explores US military and home front mobilization and the immensity of industrialized warfare; and touches on the war’s effects, as an international peace settlement was negotiated, national borders were redrawn, and soldiers returned to reintegrate into American society.
