Bullock Texas State History Museum presents "WWI America" closing day
"WWI America" presents the stories of a divisive and transformational America told through original artifacts, images, voices, music, hands-on exploration, and multimedia presentations. The exhibit includes sections for Before the War, America At War, 1917–1918, and After the War.
Throughout the exhibit, visitors encounter “Witnesses,” people who represent the complex and divergent stories of the day. Famous and little-known stories include social reformer Jane Addams, African American activist W. E. B. DuBois, evangelist Billy Sunday, WWI volunteer nurse and driver Alice O’Brien, movie star Mary Pickford, and entrepreneur-activist Madam C. J. Walker. Original artifacts, quotes, and stories remind visitors of the powerful role of individuals in an era characterized by mass movements.
