Referred to as The Great War, this global conflict lasted from July 28, 1914 to November 11, 1918. Among the terrors it originated were trench warfare and chemical weapons and the use of airplanes in combat.

American “Dough Boys” served in the deployment and engaged in brutal combat against their German foes.

Our collections from this war includes beautiful Trench Art, examples of weapons, photographs, uniforms, flags and much more.
