"Over There" with the American Expeditionary Forces in France During the Great War

A current exhibit at the Clements Library aims to present the experiences of ordinary Americans who served in France as part of the American Expeditionary Forces (AEF) during the First World War. Studying hundreds of letters written by soldiers, postcards, photographs, and other diverse materials, curator Louis Miller discovered some shared themes from these firsthand accounts to explore in the exhibition. In this lecture, Miller discusses some of the exceptional and heartbreaking stories found in the Clements’ archives, and presents an overview of the exhibit.
