The Great War clouded Thanksgiving Day 1916

While the United States was still not a combatant in World War One in 1916, the specter of the terrible war hung over the Thanksgiving dinner tables of the nation. From the White House to the West Coast, Americans were concerned about food and how the ongoing conflict might affect its supply. Read how President Woodrow Wilson's Thanksgiving Day message focused on alleviating the starvation stalking Europe as the war raged on. After America entered the war the next year, Thanksgiving was an important reminder of home for the troops deployed to Europe. the Alabama Department of Archives and History’s collection give us a glimpse of what Alabama soldiers serving in World War One experienced at Thanksgiving nearly a century ago.
