  1. Over Here Over There

    To mark the centennial of U.S. involvement in World War I, in April 2017 the MacArthur Memorial opened a new special exhibit entitled Over Here, Over There. This new exhibit explains the causes of the U.S. entry into World War I and explores wartime propaganda, the social fabric of America, the training of the American Expeditionary Force (A.E.F.) and the major campaigns fought by the A.E.F. The exhibit also discusses the American homefront, including local efforts in the Hampton Roads area.
    Open now through December 2018.
