8th Annual Save Texas History Symposium: Texas and the Great War

This post was underwritten by a generous contribution from the Texas Historical Foundation.

“World War I was one of the defining conflicts in world history,” said Texas Land Commissioner George P. Bush. “It essentially set the table for world events during the entire twentieth century. Texas’ role in World War I was significant to the American war effort at home and abroad, and those brave men and women, along with their efforts, will be remembered during this informative event.”
