Carolina Stories: Over Here: The Homefront During World War I
World War I activities on the homefront literally changed the South Carolina landscape. This program examines why African-Americans supported the war effort and how they were disappointed by response to their efforts; women’s roles and how the war played a part in the women’s movement; military camps and what they meant for South Carolina cities; and how the influenza epidemic in 1918 impacted the state. This program is funded in part by a grant from the Partnership for a Nation of Learners, a leadership initiative by the Corporation for Public Broadcasting and the Institute for Museum and Library Services.
