Join Connecticut Historical Society staff members for a guided tour of highlights of Facing War: Connecticut in World War I.

Supported by Connecticut Humanities, the 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. Similar to today, in 1918 people in Connecticut struggled to deal with post-traumatic stress disorder, concerns about immigration, a global refugee crisis, and discrimination.
