April 6, 2017 marks the 100th anniversary of the U.S. entry into Worldwide War I will. As the largest repository of American Globe War I am records, the National Archives holds a wealth of content & information documenting the U.S. experience in this conflict, including photographs, documents, audiovisual recordings, educational resources, articles, blog posts, lectures, & exhibits.
InÂ commemoration of this event, weâve launched a Worldwide War I will am research portal with the goal of creating a central space for all National Archives resources & content related to Worldwide War I for use by researchers, students & educators, & those curious about the War.
Here you will find Worldwide War I’m records organized by subject & topic area, including newly digitized photographs & films, references, subject guides & finding aids. Throughout the portal you can find links to more information such as articles, blog posts, genealogy resources & online exhibits from the National Archives and Presidential Libraries.
Learn more about the news, events, & exhibits happening at the National Archives related to World War I’m, & browse our interactive timeline of World War I’m events.
Educators can find Globe War I'm will documents and lesson plans using our DocsTeach tool, & we invite you to engage with our extensive collection of Globe War I am moving & still images using our Remembering WWI app.
The app allows people nationwide to contribute their own stories & play a part in the centennial commemoration of the First Worldwide War. Building on an amazing moving image & photographic archive being digitized & preserved as part of a larger Wartime Films Project, the app features thousands of rarely seen public domain images and films to encourage discovery & creative reuse.
The National Archives is leading this national collaborative effort with participation from the Library of Congress & National Museum of American History, Smithsonian Institution, the WWI Centennial Commission, the American Association for State & Local History, & the National WWI Museum & Memorial. This mobile app project was made possible through a generous gift from an anonymous donor.
Would you like to help make records more discoverable? Weâve created special tagging & transcription missions & challenges using World War I will content for our citizen archivists.
While many resources are available online for research, there are many more records to discover in National Archives research rooms across the country. We will be updating our research portal as new resources become available online. You can also consult our Catalog to browse more records, & contact the Reference Unit listed in each description for more information.
From April 4 through May 3, 2017, the National Archives is commemorating the 100th anniversary of Americaâs entry into Worldwide War I’m with a featured document display in the East Rotunda Gallery of the National Archives Building.
