World War I Commemoration – Check it Out!

Several months ago, I wrote about our Granddaddy Bill McCune’s service in World War I in 1917- 1918 as a corporal in the 167th U.S. Infantry, 42nd Rainbow Division, stationed in France. This year marks the 100th anniversary of the United States’ entry into the war.

 The Library of Congress has a new website in commemoration of the anniversary, and I think our family members will find it very interesting, given our grandfather’s experience in the war.

 Go here to see a wealth of information, including “exhibitions, lectures, symposia, film programs, recordings, publications, veterans’ stories, educational tools, and research guides to the Library’s remarkable World War I resources.”[1]


 I hope you check it out! Fascinating!
