World War I changed our world entirely and redefined modernity. Now, 100 years later, on January 21st from 2 to 4 pm, the Schenectady County Historical Society will explore the Great War’s effect on Schenectady and the people who lived here. The soldiers who fought, the nurses who cared, and everyone at home whose world was reshaped, completely.
The Schenectady County Historical Society will host programs, films, and exhibition exploring Schenectady in the first world war throughout 2017.
Kicking things off is the opening reception for the exhibition, “Together Until the End: Schenectady in World War One,” featuring a talk by Dr. Richard Fogarty – UAlbany associate professor and expert in 20th century war and society. Light refreshments will be served.
Admission is $5 or free for SCHS members. This program will take place at 32 Washington Ave, Schenectady.
