War

African Americans from Loudoun who served during World War I, 1922

World War I introduced a new vocabulary of words to the world regarding technology, weapons, medicine, and death. The airplane, tank, machine guns, poison gas, submarines, and lastly the Spanish Flu (Influenza) became everyday words in conversation and in local newspapers. By exploring the names of servicemen in the Muster Roll in the War with Germany, and the World War I Memorial Record, one can see a number of soldiers who trained, experienced, and died from the latest battlefield technology during the war.
