Commemorating America’s involvement in the First World War, this exhibition considers its impact on the conflict.

Looking at America’s role in the events of 1918, this exhibition reflects on the course of action from neutrality to the declaration of war against Germany, as well as on armistice and post-war legacy.

It tells stories of those who went into battle and those who stayed at home, including, among those who went into active service, writer Ernest Hemingway, Red Cross worker Charlotte Bannon and one of the 16 million animals who served.

Photographs of soldiers' graffiti in training sites are shown alongside items from the museum's collections, as well as loans from other museums and private lenders.
