Event description

Description

In 1918, millions of American troops arrived on the Western Front, greatly expanding the combat role of the U.S. Army and the Marine Corps. By war’s end in November 1918, American troops had fought in some of the war’s largest battles and played a key role in the Allied victory.

The MacArthur’s Memorial’s upcoming World War I Symposium will evaluate the performance of American troops on the battlefield during the critical year 1918 and examine how this performance forever shaped American identity and perception of the war.
