Join us as we examine Brooklyn Collection primary sources from the First World War during the centennial anniversary. By immersing ourselves in poems, political cartoons, NYC landmarks, and journals written by a Brooklyn-based soldier dispatched to the western front, we can start to piece together the stories of the Brooklyn doughboys. Educators will walk away with knowledge of Brooklyn's involvement in the Great War as well as practical classroom skills, such as analyzing political cartoons and historic monuments, while also receiving lesson plans that they can implement with their students.
