"Answering the Call: Lynchburg, Virginia and the Great War" by Edmund D. Potter, PhD
Throughout much of the US, World War I is largely an historical footnote, but not in Lynchburg. The "Hill City" was ready to be part of the conflict long before President Wilson committed troops. Dr. Potter will speak further about the homefront and the many contributions made by Lynchburg's citizens .
