World War I was considered the war to end all wars. The war brought technological advances on and off the battlefield and produced weapons that were deadlier than ever before. Developments in engineering, chemistry, and metalworking created unmerciful conditions and saw a transition from animal power to machine power as the primary means of victory. The techniques and knowledge in the field of medicine improved and adapted to the mass destruction of war. Outside the war zone, the home front proved to be a vital artery in the war effort through its sacrifices and undying support of patriotism. In all, ...

On the eve of World War I, President (and former Governor of New Jersey) Woodrow Wilson faced the difficult task of transforming the American people into a pro-war populace willing to make supreme sacrifices for the country. Replete with patriotic images and rhetoric, posters used the power of illustration art to raise money for the war effort and induce a changing American mindset towards war. Whereas posters formed a chief source of propaganda on the home front, military flags served a similar purpose on the battlefront. Once overseas, the American Expeditionary Force used the patriotic form of the flag – a ...

"Loyalty and Dissent" Brown County and World War I
Dates: 10:00am - 03:00pm 

The new Brown County Historical Society exhibit, Loyalty and Dissent: Brown County and World War I, tells a local story with national implications. When the United States declared war in April 1917, more than half of Brown County residents were first or second generation Germans. Even today, based on the U.S. Census, it is the most German city in the United States. The German language could be heard in country schools, local stores, and around the county’s many saloons. Then, suddenly, Germany – the homeland – was the enemy, and young men and women were called to arms to fight ...

Alexandrians Fight The Great War
Dates: 10:00am - 05:00pm 

This exhibit shares some of the stories of Alexandrians during the war: their feelings about this nearly-incomprehensible world tragedy, their early efforts to help, and their more active participation in the American war effort after April, 1917. Many of us have ancestors who lived through this conflict and participated in some way, and the museum staff hopes this exhibition provides a renewed interest in and appreciation for their struggles and sacrifices, as well as the new role they helped to create for the United States on the world stage. Exhibit includes rare Lusitania artifacts, period weapons, and archival video.

The Lost Squadron Screening
Dates: 07:00pm 

The Lost Squadron, 1932 The majority of the story in The Lost Squadron takes place after the war.  The film follows the post-war lives of three World War I pilots who struggle to adjust to civilian life.  Falling back on what they know, they become Hollywood movie pilots.  The plot focuses on a sadistic director who cares little if his stunt pilots live or die, as long as he gets the shot for his film.  Essentially an aviation film within an aviation film, The Lost Squadron provides an interesting behind-the-scenes glimpse at movie-making in the 1930s, while entertaining with an engaging drama.
