Learn More About Iowa and The Great War

Exactly 100 years after the United States entered the First World War, the State Historical Museum will open a new exhibition called "Iowa and the Great War" to share stories of Iowans who supported the cause. More than 114,000 men from across Iowa served in the military, including more than 100,000 soldiers, 10,000 sailors and 600 Marines.

On the homefront, residents supported the war financially and through their work, while women served at home and overseas as nurses. Learn how their courage and innovation changed the course of history far beyond the battlefields and long after the fighting finished.
