Remembering World War I: Through the Eyes of a WWI Combat Engineer

Wednesday, November 15, 2017, 06:30pm - 08:00pm

About The Event

On Wednesday, November 15, the Friends of the Dunwoody Library will host Dr. Virginia A. Dilkes, “Remembering World War I: Through the Eyes of a WWI Combat Engineer.” The public is invited for refreshments at 6:30 p.m., and the presentation is at 7:00 PM, at the Dunwoody Library, 5339 Chamblee-Dunwoody Road770.512.4640.

Dr. Dilkes' talk draws on excerpts from her father, Charles Edward Dilkes, a combat engineer in the First Division of the American Expeditionary Forces, his memoirs, and pictures of his WWI artifacts. Active in the battlefields of France, he was triumphant in Luxembourg and served in Germany in the U.S. Army of Occupation. Roles of Georgia divisions, generals and soldiers are highlighted. 

Dr. Wilkes is an active volunteer with the Georgia World War I Centennial Commission. She spent 15 years traveling to museums and archives across the U.S. and followed her father’s route through France and Germany. The original diary and artifacts, photographs and correspondence now reside at Rutgers University. 
The United States began celebrating the World War I Centennial in April 2017, and Veterans Day (formerly Armistice Day) is celebrated this week. 

Join us on November 15 to learn about “the war to end all wars,” and honor those who served our country 100 years ago.
