OLLI Program Series: The Great War: The Experience of War

Tuesday, September 19, 9:30–11 a.m.

Jackson Marshall, Lead Instructor; Charlie Knight, Curator, NC Museum of History

When war was declared, the US found itself poorly prepared—in terms of troops, training, armaments, and finances—for a global conflict. This session will examine how America prepared for the Great War and what North Carolina soldiers experienced once they arrived on the western front.

This group of Osher Lifelong Learning Institute programs is funded through membership and program fees with support from the Bernard Osher Foundation; classes are administered as part of the McKimmon Center for Extension and Continuing Education at North Carolina State University. These sessions will be held at the NC Museum of History.
