America during the 1918 Influenza Pandemic
Unrestricted Use

Rating
0.0 stars

In the spring of 1918, the United States was embroiled in World War I, fighting alongside the English, French, and Russians against the Central Powers of Germany and Austria-Hungary. In total, 70 million men were at war on multiple fronts across Europe, Russia, the Middle East, and Northern Africa. The tide was finally turning for the Allies after a crushing offensive by German forces mere weeks earlier. Then, a fierce enemy intervened—an outbreak of influenza that would decimate entire regiments and towns, kill civilians and soldiers alike by the millions, and rapidly become a global pandemic. This disease weakened forces on both sides, changing not only the course of the war but also the economies and population stability of every affected nation. In the long term, this particular outbreak would inspire research on an unprecedented scale and lead to advances in science and medicine, forever altering our understanding of epidemiology. From the spring of 1918 to early 1919, no aspect of life remained untouched by the pandemic for Americans at home and on the front. This exhibition explores the pandemic’s impact on American life.  This exhibition was created as part of the DPLA’s Digital Curation Program by the following students as part of Dr. Joan E. Beaudoin's course "Metadata in Theory and Practice" in the School of Library and Information Science at Wayne State University: Bethany Campbell, Michelle John, Samantha Reid-Goldberg, Anne Sexton, and John Weimer.

When we teach World War One, we start with a small regional conflict in the Balkans, but don’t stay there. Quickly we show the interactions between alliance members, the interconnection of multiple theaters of conflict, and the implications of a truly global war. This short framework might be helpful in persuading that we should do the same when we teach the global American Revolutionary War.

HST 104: From European Control to Independence
Conditional Remix & Share Permitted
CC BY-NC
Rating
0.0 stars

Included are two weeks lesson plans discussing the European division of the Middle East into separate, semi-autonomous states immediately following the First World War and on the subsequent efforts of the peoples of the region to secure their independence. During this unit, you will complete a country project that will examine how one of the region’s states became independent. This assignment is broken into two steps: the preliminary assignment and the essay assignment. During the first week of this unit, you will complete the preliminary assignment by choosing the country on which you will focus and by producing a brief, annotated bibliography listing the sources that you plan to use and assessing their utility for your paper. During the second week, you will complete a four-to-five-page essay in which you will use the sources listed in your annotated bibliography to explain how the state you have chosen became independent. Students who produce essays of high quality will be invited to share their research on an open-education wiki page designed to provide material for high-school students studying the history of the MIddle East.

Patriotic Labor: America during World War I
Unrestricted Use

Rating
0.0 stars

Amidst tensions over European political and territorial boundaries, the assassination of Archduke Franz Ferdinand by a Serbian terrorist in 1914 derailed peace in the western world by sparking World War I—one of the highest-casualty conflicts in modern times. While European nations quickly engaged, the United States immediately declared neutrality. By 1917, however, remaining neutral was no longer an option. The Great War would bring the United States out of isolationism and onto the world stage. It would also change life on the American home front forever. A centralized government took control of American life in an unprecedented fashion by instating a mandatory military draft, controlling industries, initiating food and ration restrictions, and launching elaborate campaigns to encourage patriotism. One of the most important, if temporary, changes brought by the war at home came from the stifled flow of labor, as men were pulled away by the draft and immigration slowed. The need for American labor provided second-class citizens, such as women and African Americans, a brief opportunity for better jobs. This glimpse would help foment in them a desire for more and equal opportunities after they were pulled away once more at war’s end. This exhibition was created as part of the DPLA’s Public Library Partnerships Project by collaborators from Digital Commonwealth. Exhibition organizer: Anna Fahey-Flynn.
