My Fellow Soldiers: Letters from World War I

Thursday, August 23, 2018, 5:00 PM - 12:30 AM


Through personal correspondence written on the frontlines and home front, this centennial exhibition uncovers the history of America's involvement in World War I. The compelling selection of letters illuminates emotions and thoughts engendered by the war that brought America onto the world stage; raised complex questions about gender, race and ethnic relations; and ushered in the modern era. Included are previously unpublished letters by General John Pershing, the general who led the American Expeditionary Forces and a person who understood the power of the medium. In his postwar letter that begins "My fellow soldiers," he recognized each individual under his command for bravery and service.
