Baltimore and the Great War (World War I)
Wayne Schaumburg

November 25, Sunday, 3 pm

Join Baltimore historian and educator Wayne R. Schaumburg for an illustrated program on Baltimore’s role in World War I.

The talk will focus on a number of different aspects of the conflict including the men and women who served in military and civilian positions.

Baltimore war industries from the manufacturing of cotton duck in Hampden to the shipyards of Bethlehem Steel played a major part in the war effort.

Johns Hopkins Hospital would establish the first medical treatment center in France.

Four present-day military installations began during the war: Camp Meade, Aberdeen Proving Grounds, Edgewood Arsenal, and Camp Holabird.

We will also take a look at some of the local heroes of the conflict as well as monuments and memorials to “The Great War” that can be found all around Baltimore.
