Origin of this blog segment:

Why this blog?

  • That we may not forget those who have come before, or their bravery, or their service.
  • To compare circumstances in the first World War with the political landscape of today’s international community.
  • To discern the personalities, events and topics which defined Delaware, and the nation, a century ago.
