Today we continued our discussion over WWI in America. We examined some documents reflecting both the soldier's experience in the war and the public opinion which emerged about the futility and horrors of war. We then discussed American involvement in the war and finished up looking at some of the wartime propaganda designed to engender support for the war and encourage participation in wartime conservation and support activities.
We didn't have time to look at sedition in the war, so tonight for homework you need to read THIS EXCERPT and be prepared to apply these laws to a few case studies in class first thing tomorrow. Don't forget your next scored discussion is this Friday and the reading selection (from Zinn, again) is posted under Period 7 activities!
