One- hundred years ago in 1917, the United States entered The Great War to fight alongside our European allies. But Washington's home front experience began long before the country entered the war, and continued afterward. Renowned Northwest historian, Lorraine McConaghy, provides an immersive look into this dramatic period of immigration, wartime industrialization, women's right, social change, radical labor, epidemic disease, and worldwide turmoil. As a special Veteran's Day highlight, you can also see Washington State Historical Society's new pop-up traveling exhibition, Washington's Great War.
