Learn More About World War I

This exhibit is created by the Minnesota History Center in partnership with the National Constitution Center, the National World War One Museum, the Oakland Museum of California and the Bullock Texas State History Museum.

This exhibit is supported by major grants from the National Endowment for the Humanities, a federal agency. 


Funding for this exhibit is made possible by the Legacy Amendment, thanks to the vote of Minnesotans on Nov. 4, 2008, who have provided a gift to future generations.
