On this day in 1917, the United States declared war on Germany and formally entered the First World War. Where does the story of WWI intersect with the stories of national parks? The answers might surprise you. Many parks, including several in the Midwest, have a WWI connection. Did Keweenaw copper aid the war effort? What about Herbert Hoover’s humanitarian efforts? Did Harry Truman really command an artillery battery in France? Learn more at https://www.nps.gov/subjects/worldwari/index.htm 

Can you think of other National Park Service sites with WWI connections?
