This weekend on C-SPAN3 some new programs are offered about the World War I experiences of some noted World War II figures.  These three programs were part of a symposium held by the MacArthur Memorial at Norfolk, Virginia.  That probably gives you a clue as to one of the three figures discussed!

Remember:  all times here are Central, watch for schedule changes at C-SPAN, and there could be additional WWI programming that isn’t currently mentioned on their website.  The last occasionally happens to programs listed simply as American History TV with little or no description on their website.

This weekend’s programs:

Dwight Eisenhower & World War I.  Airs first at 12:00 Noon on Saturday, June 16, and repeats the following morning at 4:10 a.m.

Douglas MacArthur’s Leadership from World War I to World War II.  Airs at 1:00 p.m. Saturday, June 16, and repeats at 5:10 a.m the following morning.

George C. Marshall & World War I.  Airs at 1:53 p.m. Saturday, June 16,  and repeats at 6:03 a.m the following morning.

Also from the Library of Congress this weekend:

-American Artifacts:  Great War Exhibit, Part I.  The first part of a tour of an exhibit of World War I materials at the Library.  Airs at 5:00 p.m. Sunday, June 17, and repeats at 9:00 p.m. that evening.
