Join the George C. Marshall International Center and Morven Park for a virtual presentation on the soldier and civilian experience in the First World War. As the men and women fighting abroad battled disease as well as bullets, Loudouners did their part to support the war effort through rationing and revolutionizing farming techniques. Young George C. Marshall and Governor Westmoreland Davis were just two of the millions of Americans involved in this massive undertaking in the name of democracy. Presenters Cody Youngblood, GCMIC Director of Museum Operations, and Jackie Ly, Morven Park Museum Engagement Manager, will discuss the trials, tribulations, and successes of soldiers fighting abroad and civilians in Loudoun County, focusing on Colonel George C. Marshall and Governor Westmoreland and First Lady Marguerite Davis.
This is a virtual event that will be held on GCMIC’s and Morven Park’s Facebook pages live. This virtual event is free and open to the public!
