The Cultural History of the Great War and its 100 Year Legacy
The public is invited to commemorate Veterans Day at a free program, Joseph Stuart, chair of the University of Mary History Department, will present elements of “the war to end all wars” that continue to affect world politics today. A reader’s theater production created and performed by University of Mary students, “Letters from the Great War,” will conclude the program.
As part of a history course, Stuart’s students combed the North Dakota State Archives for letters and information from young men and women who served in Europe and called North Dakota home. The students have identified and transcribed more than 100 letters from “boys at the front” and nurses who served in the Great War. Portions of these letters make up the moving content of this unique performance.
