About The Event

In April 2017, the MacArthur Memorial will open a new special exhibit entitled "Over Here, Over There". This new exhibit will examine the causes of the U.S. entry into World War I, wartime propaganda, the social fabric of America, the American Expeditionary Force (training, preparations and collaboration with Allied forces) and major campaigns fought by the A.E.F. The exhibit will also discuss the American homefront, including local efforts in the Hampton Roads area. "Over Here, Over There" will be on display at the MacArthur Memorial Visitors Center, April 8, 2017-December 30, 2018.
