Please join the National WWI Museum and Memorial and Ivy League Alumni for a private Meet & Greet and Program.

The exhibition, Images of the Great War: America Crosses the Atlantic focuses on the final two years of the Great War with the emphasis on American involvement. On April 6, 1917, the United States declared war on Germany. The first American troops arrived in France in June, at a time when British and French morale was faltering. Volume 5 of Harper’s Pictorial History of the World War states: “America won her independence as a result of the Revolutionary War, in which France became our ally, furnishing troops, a fleet and money. In 1917 America repaid the debt by sending an army overseas at a time when the French were exhausted.”

Following a brief Meet & Greet with light refreshments, Ivy League guests will be invited to a lecture program by Andrew Woelflein, Brown University Collection Trustee, and Jonathan Casey, Director, Archives and Edward Jones Research Center for the National WWI Museum and Memorial.
