The Old Dominion played a surprisingly large role during the Great War, supplying the Allied Forces with food, horses, and steel in 1915 and 1916. After American entered the war on April 6 1917, Virginians served in a number of military and civilian roles, from Red Cross nurses to sailors and from shipbuilders to pilots. In this talk, Dr. Rainville takes the audience on a journey through historic sites in Virginia that served as a backdrop for these efforts.
