It was called “the war to end all wars,” a truly global conflict. Sixty-five million men from 40 countries fought during WWI. Often forgotten are the thousands of female Red Cross volunteers and Army nurses who served at home and on the front lines caring for the injured and witnessing firsthand the horrors of war. Join us for a rare look into the lives of women such as Marjorie Lyon who stepped up to volunteer for the Red Cross during the Great War.
