Exhibit Tour of Facing War: Connecticut in World War I
One hundred years ago, the First World War consumed the lives of Connecticut residents. This exhibit explores how people responded to the conflict and how it impacted life during and after the war. Hundreds of photographs, letters, posters, clothing, equipment, and other artifacts from the CHS collection help tell the stories of Connecticut individuals impacted by the war, including military servicemen and servicewomen, nurses, conscientious objectors, and YMCA and Red Cross workers.
