America and the Great War: 1914-1918
Tuesday, October 26
America and the Great War: 1914-1918  (Educational Opportunities)
6:30 pm to 8:00 pm
Eiseley Branch Library, 1530 Superior St., Lincoln, meeting rooms #1
Please join us for a presentation by David Wells as we approach Veteran's Day 2021.  Do you have a WWI veteran ancestor or maybe you want to understand more about your American ancestor's sentiment about WWI.
The role of America in “the war to end all wars” is misunderstood. Most people think only of the 1917-18 period when U.S. soldiers marched off to save the world, not realizing that from 1914-17 the nation was opposed to the war. Songs of the period show the changing attitude of the American public, from neutrality to anti-war sentiments to entry in the war and the ultimate defeat of Germany. World War II and the Cold War make more sense when you understand what happened between 1914-18. Wells features a special section of patriotic songs written by Nebraskans from Chadron to Omaha. A 45-minute slide program and a large display of sheet music are included. 
Sessions are free and open to visitors and the public.
