Over Here & Over There: Centennial of WWI
From Friday 10 November 2017
To Tuesday 02 January 2018

A two part exhibit from the National Archives travels to the West Baton Rouge Museum. Part One is called “Over Here: Americans at Home in World War I” that draws on the unparalleled photographic holdings of the National Archives to capture the patriotic fervor of draft registration, the emotional good-byes of men leaving for training camps, the “hoopla” of Liberty Loan drives, the craze for volunteerism, and the violence of vigilantism. Part Two, “Over There: Americans Abroad in World War I” showcases overseas military photography from the holdings of the National Archives, including from the fronts, behind the lines, and the consequences of the war and how it was remembered.

Location 845 N. Jefferson Ave. Port Allen, LA 70767
