MESS NIGHT AT THE MUSEUM: OUR BOYS IN FRANCE

Thursday, January 26, 2017

5:30 PM - 8:00 PM

Travel back to 1918 with WVM Reference Archivist Russ Horton as he presents OUR BOYS IN FRANCE. Featured materials include: original scripts, slides, and supporting propaganda distributed by the U.S. government's Committee on Public Information.

Community leaders received these materials after the U.S. entered World War I and used them to drum up public support for the war effort. Experience what it was like to be in such a crowd almost 100 years ago and see firsthand how the American public viewed World War I.

Fee (Includes dinner): $22 (Members) $30 (Non-Members)

Advance registration is required with payment due at the time of registration. Cancellations for refunds must be requested no later than two weeks prior to the event. Please note any dietary restrictions in the comment box during registration.
