Lunch and Learn Series: War, Medicine and Remembrance

Thursday, November 07, 2013 , 11:30 a.m. - 1:30 p.m.

The year 2014 marks the 100th anniversary of the World War I. Monarchies fell; the “old world” order was greatly damaged; Communism rose; and 37 million soldiers and civilians were killed, wounded or died. Dr. Chris McDonald, LLCC professor of social sciences, will discuss Sangamon County’s involvement in WWI, specifically on members of the ambulance corps. Adriana Schroeder, writer and command historian for the Illinois National Guard, will speak on “Prairie Soldiers Passed: The Illinois State Military Museum.”
