Tribute to WWI

It has been 100 years since WWI started and kicked off the transformation of the United States into the nation it is today. In spite of this, it is severely neglected in public education and few people know much more about it other than the fact that it was begun by the assassination of the Archduke Ferdinand by Serbian nationalists.

I must admit that my knowledge is also limited, but my love for the time period, especially the culture, has given me a deep appreciation for the war which was supposed to end all wars.

I intend to spotlight WWI through the music of the period and miscellaneous entries about a variety of aspects of the war.

Let us begin with Over There, sung by Enrico Caruso, a popular singer at that time.
