2017 was the 100th anniversary of the America’s entry into the Great War, now known as World War I and 2018 was the centennial of the end of that war. To commemorate it, Historical Experiences presents MINNESOTA IN THE GREAT WAR, an exciting living history program that will entertain us while we learn all about the first modern war.

This presentation is a wonderful way to commemorate the contributions and sacrifices made by Minnesotans during World War I. The Great War is often called the forgotten war because people know so little about it as compared to World War 2 and America’s other conflicts.

MINNESOTA IN THE GREAT WAR will enlighten us and cause us to come away from the program realizing what an epic event it was and how it set the stage for many important events that would follow in the 20th and 21st century.

This multimedia presentation will use power-point, video, music, drama, role-playing and living history experiences, to give us an understanding of this turbulent time and make history come alive for us.
