Whitehall Lecture Series - The Last of the Doughboys

Sunday, February 18, 2018 @ 3:00pm
Henry Morrison Flagler Museum

The 33rd Annual Whitehall Lecture Series, Heroes of the Homefront: World War I and the Faces of Wartime America, presented each Sunday afternoon from February 11th to March 11th, commemorates the roles of American soldiers and supporters during World War I. Each lecture will present a unique range of historical perspectives, including those of political and military leadership, the Doughboys on the front lines, minority infantrymen conscripted to battle, and women on the homefront and abroad. Heroes of the Homefront will evoke a new appreciation for America’s participation in World War I and address the ways in which American culture was forever changed by it. When possible, a book signing with the author will follow each lecture.

Richard Rubin spent more than a decade compiling the firsthand stories of World War I soldiers as a written legend of accounts. In The Last of the Doughboys, he explores their vivid recollections of war that express equally poignant views of the camaraderie among men and the horrors of industrial warfare. This lecture is sure to tell the story of World War I unlike any you may have heard before.
