Historical retrospective commemorating the 100th anniversary of America's entrance into World War I (1917) and Knights of Columbus war relief efforts.
AMERICAN VOLUNTEERS IN WORLD WAR I
Although the United States entered the war on April 6, 1917, Americans had been volunteering since August of 1914. Individuals undertook humanitarian and military service, primarily with the Allies, after the war broke out. They volunteered as ambulance and truck drivers, as hospital workers, as doctors and nurses. They crossed into Canada and received military training and were sent to Europe to fight under Allied flags. Organizations including the Knights of Columbus mobilized and contributed also.
A Century of Service
Founded as a fraternal benefit organization in 1882, the Knights of Columbus displays its milestones and development in the Wall of History.
