America and World War I

York College of Pennsylvania history instructor John Maietta will explore the American experience during the Great War.  One hundred years ago the New World came to the rescue of the Old, as more than two million U.S. troops entered active combat in World War I. Maietta will discuss the  causes of the war, its course on the battlefields of Europe, and its impact on American society and culture. The program will include York County connections and discuss  the conflict’s troubled and controversial peace, but also its legacy for people at home, in memories of liberty bonds, victory gardens, and patriotic support for the local boys who joined the fight to “make the world safe for democracy.”
