April 6 marks the

during, and after official U.S. participation—was both critical and fascinating.
Events are planned throughout the state to tell the story—including a major
exhibit at the Eden Woolley House.

6:30, July 29, on the grounds of the Eden Woolley House to raise the flag in
memory of the men and women who served in the First World War (1914-1918; for
