The Palouse, played a little known, but important role in the First World War, even before the U.S. entered the conflict in April 1917. Join instructor Richard Sola on Thursdays, beginning October 12 from 9:30 a.m. to 12 p.m. in the Colfax Library's TEK Center, and discover how the area prepared, as America geared up to fight the War to End All Wars. Southest Washington changed overnight, with women entering the workforce, food rationing, Victory Gardens, a universal draft, censorship, and the search for spies and subversives. Especially important, was the need to protect from sabotage the local production of wheat, timber, and minerals - all essential components of the war effort. Using original sources, learn how the Palouse region responded to major social changes as the war raged in Europe.
