Dr. Lisa Budreau will present the keynote address for Columbus Historical Society's World War I program. Her talk will focus on the saga of the war dead and the efforts of the living to honor their heroes. It’s a staggering, often-macabre tale steeped in the pathos and human drama of a democratic nation struggling to find meaning in the aftermath of World War I. Dr. Budreau will unravel the political and social dynamics of this venture as they unfolded from 1919 until the early 1930s and explore the development of the heritage landscapes that men created in an attempt to remember the apocalypse of their era.

The event is free, but registration is required.
