Description

The First World War required an unprecedented mobilization of resources, opinion, and people in 1917 and 1918. Across remarks on the debates over conscription, the shaping of policy, trade with Europe, race and ethnicity, regional antimilitarism, and life in the training camps, Jennifer Keene, Ross Kennedy, and Michael Neiberg collectively posited a modestly distinctive southern experience but with important qualifications and limits. Audience members asked the panelists for further discussion of definitions--of "the South" and "the Great War"--and for their thoughts on regional animosities, sectional reconciliation, the preparedness debate, and the role of southern churches in the war mobilization.
