Add to Calendar 11/09/2018 11:00 AM 11/09/2018 12:00 PM America/New_York WWI: The Impact of World War I on America and the Journey to World War II

Program to be held at the Grandville Senior Neighbors Center, 3380 Division Ave SW, Grandville, MI 49418.

In this lecture series by Matthew Daley, history professor at GVSU, he discusses the long-term outlook of the United States in dealing with international organizations like the League of Nations, the backlash against the expense and consideration of war-profiteering that led to the Nye Committee that investigated U.S. participation in the war during the 1930s, and organizations like “America First” that concerned the U.S. joining the Second World War. All of this came from the experience of the First World War, even though it isn’t combat related, it has a powerful impact.
