Commemorating the "War to End All Wars"
In this unit students will review the events leading up to the United States’ involvement in World War I, analyze President Wilson’s speech to Congress asking them to vote favorably for war, explore its effects on South Carolina and how South Carolinians contributed to the war efforts, and how it was perceived through media such as propaganda posters. Students will then design a war memorial commemorating South Carolina’s war efforts.
