Join us each month as we commemorate the 100th anniversary of World War I, the Great War. To kick off the series, come listen to historian, Al Barnes, as he describes how America and Virginia created an army from scratch – from the creation of training camps and conscription to immigrant soldiers and the homefront – this presentation introduces the Great War and its little-known impact on America’s history and its citizens. Free event. Continues on Feb. 23, Mar. 9, and Apr. 22.
