Life in the trenches during the First World War has become an enduring topic. Undoubtedly, it was an entirely unexpected experience for those eager American lads who signed up for the war in April 1917. What was life actually like for the men serving tours of duty in the line, be they front line, support or reserve? In the fourth of the “White Glove Access” programs presented by the Woodrow Wilson Presidential Library, the Library’s curator and archivist will attempt to answer that question by taking a closer look at 'Life in the Trenches, A Soldiers Life in the Great War". This program offered by the Wilson Library allows visitors a behind the scenes look at collections and archives which have previously been unavailable to the public. Open to the public this program will be held at the Library and Research Center of the Woodrow Wilson Library located at 253 East Beverley St. on Wednesday evening April 9th at 7 pm. Join the Library staff as they explore the uniforms, weapons, and artifacts from their extensive collection as they depict the life of an everyday soldier during World War I. Light refreshments will be provided. Reservations are suggested as space is limited. The cost for the program is $5.00 for League of Friends Members or $10.00 for Non-members.
