Presented by the Hylton Center Veterans and the Arts Initiative and Lifelong Learning Institute, Manassas 

Echoes of the Great War: American Experiences of World War I examines the upheaval of world war as Americans confronted it— both at home and abroad. The exhibition considers the debates and struggles that surrounded U.S. engagement; explores U.S. military and home front mobilization and the immensity of industrialized warfare; and touches on the war’s effects, as an international peace settlement was negotiated, national borders were redrawn, and soldiers returned to reintegrate into American society." Free and open to the public.

Presenting Sponsor: Azalea Charities, Inc., Frank E. Lasch, Sr. Chairman and Founder

Sponsors: Dominion Energy, City of Manassas, J Barrows Sales Training, Safeway Foundation, Virginia Commission for the Arts, National Endowment for the Arts
