The WWI and America Initiative in Action at the Hoboken Historical Museum

The city of Hoboken, New Jersey, has a special connection to World War I. It was the port of embarkation for almost two million American soldiers heading overseas. To commemorate the 100-year anniversary of America’s entry into WWI, the Hoboken Historical Museum, recipient of a WWI and America grant and a Gilder Lehrman traveling exhibition, has organized the ten-part lecture series Heaven, Hell, or Hoboken. From August 2016 to May 2017, the museum will host visiting authors who will explore a variety of themes on "the war to end all wars."
