Echoes of the Great War: American Experiences of World War I

About The Event

Echoes of the Great War: American Experiences of World War I examines the upheaval of world war as Americans confronted it—both at home and abroad. The exhibition considers the debates and struggles that surrounded U.S. engagement; explores U.S. 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.

With the most comprehensive collection of multi-format World War I holdings in the nation including those materials gathered and preserved by the Veterans History Project, the Library of Congress is uniquely positioned to tell stories through the words and images of those in the seats of power as well as lesser-known participants whose lives were shaken by the Great War. Featuring newly digitized footage, some not seen for nearly 100 years, Echoes of the Great War makes vivid this turbulent time in our nation's history.

Echoes of the Great War: American Experiences of World War I is on view in the Southwest Gallery on the second floor of the Library's Thomas Jefferson Building, 10 First St. S.E., Washington, D.C.
