The Library of Congress is announcing several exhibitions, lectures and other activities for the Centennial of the American entry into the First World War.

Unfortunately for those of us sitting in the center of the country, we may not get to Washington to see or hear them.  If we’re lucky, C-SPAN will tape them for later viewing.
