America and the Road to War 1914-1917
On Monday, October, 23, 2017, the Department of History will hold its 51st Annual History Forum. This year, the event will be held at Duquesne University's Charles J. Dougherty Ballroom, Power Center, Fifth Floor. Dr. Michael Neiberg, Chair of the War Studies and Professor of History at the U.S. Army War College in Carlisle, PA will present "America and the Road to War 1914-1917."
2017 marks the 100th anniversary of the United States' entry into the First World War. Pittsburgh native and critically acclaimed author Michael Neiberg will trace the long and torturous path to American involvement, showing how the pubic debates over this "War to End All Wars" centered on issues such as morality, economics, and the very nature of American idenity.
