The Great War


When the United States entered World War I on April 6, 1917, the men and women of Chemung County answered the call to service. The Great War will explore what life was like for those in service and on the home front. Topics within the exhibit will include: life in the military including recruitment, the draft, and experiences in service; how people contributed to the war effort at home through fundraising, rationing, and other efforts; and the aftermath of the war when soldiers returned home. The exhibit will focus on local service members and organizations and their roles in the war effort.
