Description

War Against War on the USA Homefront
One hundred years ago, on April 6, 1917, the United States entered World War I. On the battlefield, millions were slaughtered by chemical warfare, machine guns, and trench warfare. On the homefront, the conflict led to a “war against war” and the emergence of the modern American peace movement.

In this lecture, Scott Bennett, Ph.D., GCU professor of history and chair of history, geography and political science, will explore antiwar dissent and peace activism during World War I. This militant grassroots antiwar movement raised key issues—civil liberties, patriotism, and citizen peace activism—that remain vital to American democracy.

The presentation will be based on Dr. Bennett’s most recent book, Antiwar Dissent and Peace Activism in World War I America: A Documentary Reader (2014).
