« back to classes page
The U.S. abruptly changed course and joined the Great War in 1917. We will examine the U.S. home front and the fighting “over there” from 1917 to 1919. It was a paradoxical time of grand ideals, suppression of dissent, systemic racism, and unprecedented government involvement in business and private life, followed by bitter disillusionment. The Wilson War years were a time of high-minded self-sacrifice coinciding with suspicion, hatred, and self-serving partisan politics that provides powerful insight into today’s challenges.
