Aaron Noble, curator of the NYS Museum’s exhibition on WW1 will discuss the role New York State and its citizens played during World War I. Both on the battlefield and on the home front, through industrial production as well as civic participation and debate, New Yorkers had a major impact on the shaping of these events.
