About this collection

Indiana State Library

 

Over 150,000 people from Indiana answered the call to serve when the United States entered the Great War on April 6, 1917. The war officially ended on Armistice Day, November 11, 1918, although many were stationed overseas until mid-1919. This collection comprises correspondence, diaries, photographs and other materials detailing the experiences of Hoosiers during World War I, both at home and abroad. Hoosier men and women were aided the war effort in a variety of ways, as soldiers, pilots, nurses, members of the American Cross, and civilians engaged in war work, not to mention everyday citizens. New materials are being added to the Digital Collections continuously in commemoration of the World War I Centennial.
