Boston and Massachusetts During World War I    NEW!

2018 marks the centennial of the final year of World War I. American armies poured into France to fight side by side with their Allies against Germany. During this time, Boston saw itself as a leader in this effort, same as it did in times of prior crisis, such as the American Civil War and the American Revolution. The people and government of Massachusetts responded in unique ways out of proportion to its size in relation to the rest of the country, from sending the first fully formed division ready to fight in France, to building ships and submarines, to being the only State in the U.S. actually attacked by Germany. If you thought Massachusetts "became" a hi-tech state during the computer era of the late '70s, look again and see the real history behind Boston's transformation of itself from a financial, cultural, and literary center to a hi-tech, modern, multi-ethnic city, populated by inventors, tech businesses, and thought leaders.
