TODAY–WORLD WAR I & THE GERMAN-AMERICAN EXPERIENCE IN NORTHWEST OHIO

Bowling Green State University’s Department of World Languages and Cultures and Wood County Historical Center & Museum present World War I & the German-American Experience in Northwest Ohio, Wednesday, October 4th at 7:00 PM  at the Wood County Historical Center and Museum, 13660 County Home Road, Bowling Green in observance of German-American Day.

Presentations by Dr. Geoff Howes and Education Coordinator Michael McMaster about the German-American experience during World War I in Northwest Ohio.

Many German Americans supported Germany’s war aims at first, but fully backed the USA once it entered the World War. Dr. Geoff Howes, retired BGSU professor from the Department of World Languages and Cultures, will talk about how this transformation played out in the local German-American press.

Wood County Historical Museum Education Coordinator, Michael McMaster, will discuss selections from his book, Henry County in the Great War: German-Americans, Patriots, and Loyalty 1914-1918. Learn how, in 1918, the League of American Patriots of Henry County conducted loyalty trials and perpetrated a campaign of persecution against Henry County’s German-Lutheran Churches.

Enjoy German food and fellowship after the program. $5 suggested donation, WCHS Members FREE.

Take a self-guided museum tour to see the current exhibit about Wood County and WWI – OVER THERE! Send Word, the Wood County Boys are Coming. WWI 1914-1918.

The museum is located at 13660 County Home Road, Bowling Green, Ohio 43402.
