World War I: Lessons and Legacies

From the Great Migration to the 1918 flu pandemic and from the unionization movement to women's suffrage, World War I led to pivotal changes in America's culture, technology, economy, and role in the world. It redefined how we saw ourselves as Americans and its legacy continues today. 

Drop into Eisenhower to see the poster exhibition organized by the Smithsonian Institution Traveling Exhibition Service and the National Museum of American History, with funding from The United States World War I Centennial Commission and the Smithsonian Women’s Committee.

The update also includes changes that make it more clear what items are in the Eisenhower collection and which are available to borrow right now.
