The Great Crusade: World War I and the Legacy of the American Revolution

April 7 — September 17, 2017

The United States entered World War I to defend freedom and democracy against tyranny and oppression, inspired by the ideals of the American Revolution and the memory of the Revolutionary War. The war transformed the nation's political and cultural relationship with Europe and shaped a new determination to spread the principles of the American Revolution around the world. The Great Crusade features materials illustrating the connection between the Revolution and World War I drawn from the Society's collections, including posters, sheet music, and recordings as well as other printed works, art, and artifacts.
