2017 Multi-Organization Exhibition
Over There, Over Here:
World War I & Life in NH Communities
Over There, Over Here: World War I and Life in N.H. Communities is a multi-group collaboration commemorating the 100th anniversary of the United States’ entry into World War I. The goal is to put the war in social context exploring the themes of the lives of service men and women, Native American soldiers, the development of camouflage and chemical warfare, communication tactics on the battlefield, the war relief effort, changes on the home front, temperance, women’s suffrage, the Influenza epidemic, and the profound changes in music, art, and literature. This year long event will feature exhibits, programs, lectures, and book readings. This site provides information about the participating organizations, programming and exhibits. We have also included links to recommended books and other resources on the topic of WWI.
This exhibition is made possible by grants from:
