The National World War I Museum and Memorial has been good about sending out newsletters to help educators with subjects appropriate to Great War studies, so we’re happy to pass the word along.  They’ve just come out with Issue #6, “The Home Front.”

I don’t believe we posted anything for the Special Issue that came out a few weeks ago for the commemoration of the American entry into the war.  We’ll correct that now.

Of course, if you’ve missed any of the previous issues, those are available online for your consideration.
