Happy 4th of July!
Special Edition for
When the United States joined the escalating European war in 1917,
American patriotism was running high. The US had a small army,
but, with the passage of the Selective Service
Act, four million men were drafted and by the summer of 1918
the US was sending 10,000 soldiers to France every day. This
changed everything for our European allies.
