WWI: Lessons and Legacies

Starting Wednesday, December 4

(movie: 6:00-8:00 p.m.)

Macedon Public Library is proud to present an exhibit of posters from the Smithsonian Institution exploring the history of The Great War and its lasting impact on American life. You’ll explore how World War I gave rise to significant and enduring changes in America and watch a Smithsonian-created movie at 6:00 p.m. titled WWI: How the Great War Still Influences Us.

This exhibit is appropriate for adults and children in grades three and up. These beautiful and history-packed posters will become the property of Macedon Public Library and remain proudly on display as a tribute to WWI veterans following our opening presentation.

Town of Macedon Historian Linda Braun will also have a table set up with the honor roll listing of local men who fought in WWI. She is seeking assistance from community members in identifying others who may be missing from the list. Please stop by and see if your ancestors are included–if not, let Linda know.

World War I: Lessons and Legacies is organized by the Smithsonian Institution’s Traveling Exhibition Service and the National Museum of American History, with funding from The United States World War I Centennial Commission and the Smithsonian Women’s Committee.
