TONY WOIAK HISTORY FESTIVAL

The Great War Comes to Washburn

The First World War had a profound effect on the Washburn community. The sudden surge of activity at the DuPont explosives plant in Barksdale had widespread impacts throughout the city and surrounding area, but many local families had individual stories to tell of sons and daughters who went off to serve their country. Seven of these men and one of these women never came back. Bob and Susan Mackreth will offer a view of the home front and tell the stories of the Washburn men and women who served in the war, using their own diaries and photo albums to offer a glimpse into their experiences.

Music:   Rick Gilman
