Join author and historian Lynn Rainville as she discusses her new book, "Virginia and the Great War: Mobilization, Supply and Combat, 1914–1919." After America entered World War I in 1917, Virginians served in numerous military and civilian roles—Red Cross nurses, sailors, shipbuilders, pilots, stenographers, and domestic gardeners. Almost every city and county lost men and women to the war. Rainville details the state's manifold contributions to the war effort and presents a study of monuments erected after the war. A book signing follows the talk. This event complements our current exhibition, "True Sons of Freedom."
