Launch of World War I Traveling Exhibit

The public is invited to the launch of Remembering the Great War: Alabama and World War One, on Thursday, April 6 at 4 p.m.  Remembering the Great War is a traveling exhibit that commemorates the centennial anniversary of the state’s involvement in the war and tells the story of the Great War from the perspectives of Alabamians whose lives were shaped by the conflict.  

A special preview screening of the PBS | American Experience documentary The Great War will begin at 5 p.m. The Great War tells the rich and complex story of World War I through the voices of nurses, journalists, aviators and the American troops who came to be known as “doughboys.”

Remembering the Great War was created by the Caroline Marshall Draughon Center for the Arts & Humanities in the College of Liberal Arts at Auburn University and the Alabama Department of Archives & History, with assistance from Industrial Design students in the College of Architecture, Design and Construction and Associate Professor Shu-Wen Tzeng.
