  • In this final part of the series, America, and Yolo County, have entered the last 47 days of the “Great War.” During this time the American Expeditionary Force fought what is still the deadliest battle in the history of the United States, the Meuse-Argonne, with Yolo County boys among the 26,000 men who made the supreme sacrifice. After the armistice, the boys began to return home, first from the training camps, then slowly from “Over There”. However, politicians were still trying to construct a peace treaty that addressed widely divergent interests. Many, both at home and abroad, began to question whether a “Road to Peace” indeed could truly be found. This series is supported by the Yolo County Library, the Yolo County Archives and the Friends of the Yolo County Archives. The Yolo County Library encourages community memory and champions the local rich history of Yolo County. For more information about this series, contact Mel Russell at yolocountyWW1@gmail.com.
