Beyond the Trenches: The Stories and Legacy of Wisconsin in WWI

DeForest Area Community & Senior Center
This event has ended.

Wisconsin went to war reluctantly in 1917, but by the Armistice in 1918 the Badger State’s veterans made important contributions to Allied victory. The war left an important legacy visible in the Wisconsin National Guard and at various places on the state’s geography. This talk will examine the war through the accounts and stories of Wisconsin veterans on land, sea, and air.
