Based on oral histories and the extensive collections of the Oshkosh Public Museum, Bradley G. Larson shares the stories of local men and women, and how the war shaped their outlook on life, on their nation and patriotism, and on community service.

All the Hometown Boys

In the summer of 1917 three Wisconsin National Guard companies came together to form the 150th Machine Gun Battalion of the now famous 42nd "Rainbow" Division. As true comrades, they relied on one another for support as they fought in every major battle of the American Expeditionary Forces. Today the 150th is all but forgotten, in part because their unit history has never been written. Through letters, diaries, and other recollections, Brad Larson reveals the stories of these Guardsmen's experiences.

The William Hoy Story

William Hoy led the National League in stolen bases in his rookie year. He had a strong, sure arm and a knack for catching fly balls. He was also deaf. Hoy loved baseball more than anything. When he was told he was too short for his school team, he wouldn't let that stop him -- he practiced and became good enough to play in the major leagues! Being deaf wasn't easy, since few people used sign language in the 1880s. He taught the umpires hand signals so he could see the calls, and then he really started to score! Discover how Dummy Hoy became one of the greatest and most beloved players of his time.
