Whitehall Lecture Series - Uncle Sam Wants You

Sunday, March 11, 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.

This lecture examines the ways in which American politics shifted as a result of a new era of war strategy and how the mobilization of a society of concerned citizens affected the homefront. While at first, duty, obligation, and personal responsibility were the focus of homefront efforts, growing strife led to an uproar of violence and a heated political climate. Told through the unique voices of political leaders and American citizens, Uncle Sam Wants You will cover military conscriptions and conscientious objection, homefront voluntarism, regulation of enemy aliens, and the emergence of civil liberties movements.
