The National Archives has just opened the World War I online exhibit and invites you to “browse the wealth of records and information documenting the U.S. experience in this conflict, including photographs, documents, audiovisual recordings, educational resources, articles, blog posts, lectures, and events”.

Included in this exhibit is more than 110,000 photographs and almost 300 reels of film related to the war thanks to an anonymous donor whose donation made this digitizing project possible. These photographs take you from the home front to the battlefield.

Visit the World War I Portal to view these amazing photos and many other records, articles and educational programs.

We'd like to hear from you.
