Gettysburg and the Great War
Please join us on Tuesday, March 3, 2015 at 7 P.M. for Gettysburg and the Great War.
This program will be held in the auditorium of Valentine Hall at the Lutheran Theological Seminary at Gettysburg presented by Sarah Johnson, a senior at Gettysburg College.
This program will focus on Gettysburg’s unique participation in the Great War from the home front. Compared to the detailed work being done on the town's Civil War history, shockingly little is known about the turbulent years of the Great War from 1914 to 1918. The draft, Liberty Loan campaigns, food shortages, and anti-German sentiment are major subthemes demonstrating ways a town three thousand miles away from the front could be inundated by war on a daily basis.
This program is free and open to the public thanks to the generous sponsorship from ACNB Bank.
