Over There, Over Here: Americans and WWIWWI Victory Liberty Loan poster

Main Library, every Tuesday, April 11-May 16, 6:30-8:30 p.m.

World War I was a defining moment in the twentieth century, changing the global balance of power and setting the course for future struggles. With no intention of becoming involved, the United States government declared neutrality for more than two-and-a-half years. By the time the US entered the war in April 1917, massive political changes had taken place in Europe and the Middle East, soon leading to changes in the US as well. Over There, Over Here: Americans and World War I examines how, at home and abroad, Americans coped with a new, brutal conflict whose legacy still echoes today.

Kathie Johnson, retired associate professor from the University of Louisville and a former archivist, leads this Short Course that coincides with the centenary of US involvement in WWI.
