"World War I for the Housewife and Family"

Wednesday, August 15, 6:00 pm

World War I was unique in that an official rationing did not take place. Instead propaganda in many different forms played on U.S. citizen's patriotic duty to change their daily consumption of items for those overseas. And it worked! In this presentation, Debra Daubert, Curator of Exhibitions, explores the forms of propaganda that was used and the sacrifices that were made. Attendees can even sample altered wartime recipes.
