American Doughboys in the First World War

is the title of Robert Mueller's presentation on Wednesday, March 29, at 7pm at the Niles Public Library. Mr.  Mueller, a member of the Military Writers Society of America and author of Fields of War: Fifty Key Battlefields in France and Belgium presents a slide-lecture on the 100th anniversary of America’s sending troops “over there.”

America formally entered the war on April 6, 1917, when  the U.S. House of Representatives endorsed the decision by a vote of 373 to 50, two days after the U.S. Senate voted 82 to 6 to declare war against Germany.
