One hundred years ago, millions of Americans traveled to Europe to fight or took on new responsibilities at home during the “War to End War” or the “Great War.”  World War I changed how Americans worked, lived, and saw the world.  Explore how World War I touched Connecticut, from manufacturing and military service to relief drives and victory gardens.

Michael Limberg is a historian specializing in the history of US Foreign Policy. He recently completed his PhD in History at the University of Connecticut, where he currently serves as a lecturer.
