World War I: 1917 – Rebellion, Revolution, and
the Yanks are Coming!
When: September 7th at 6:30 PM
Where: Town Hall Assembly Room
As The Great War entered its fourth year, there was no obvious sign the stalemate would break anytime soon; but cracks were starting to show, and the decision of the United States to declare war and join the Allied cause gave hope for the future. Local historian Chris Bielik will discuss the impact of the events of 1917, from the abdication of Tsar Nicholas II of Russia to the mutiny of the French Army, to America’s decision to finally send troops Over There! and how they set the stage for the culmination of the conflict the following year.
