Active Minds: World War I: The Great War
1:00-2:00 pm Last November marked the hundred year anniversary of the end of World War I, join Active Minds for a look at the “war to end all wars.”
We will start by understanding the ingredients that kindled the flame that was ignited by the assassination of Archduke Ferdinand on June 28th, 1914 and follow the story as the various players get pulled into the conflict, including the United States in April of 1917. We will end with a brief preview of how the seeds of future conflict were sewn at the conclusion of World War I.
