Atlanta History Center hosting exhibition on World War I


ATLANTA — The Atlanta History Center is preparing to host a series of four exhibition­s related to World War I and the centennial of U. S. in- volvement in the conflict.

The first of the exhibits — The Great War i n Broad Outlines — is set to open March 6. The three other exhibits open on later dates through the summer of 2018.

The history center said three of the exhibition­s are in partnershi­p with Belgian, French, and British organizati­ons.

Atlanta History Center Executive Vice President Michael Rose said in a statement that in many ways, the war is nearly forgotten in our nation’s memory, despite a staggering 38 million casualties across the world.

The U. S. entered the fighting on April 6, 1917.
