World War I (1914-1918) was the modern world’s first international conflict. Total casualties exceeded 20 million, including 11 million soldiers. More than 116,000 Americans died as a result of the war.
The Knights of Columbus was active in war relief efforts, managing highly successful fundraising drives and catering to servicemen in America and abroad through recreation centers known as army huts.
The impact of World War I was felt for generations. No one during this time period was unaffected.
The Knights of Columbus Museum commemorates the 100th anniversary of the United States’ participation in the war with an exhibition, "World War I: Beyond the Front Lines" (April 6, 2017 – Dec. 30, 2018). A series of WWI-related lectures and presentations will be offered throughout the course of the exhibition.
