UNIVERSITY PLACE

The Wisconsin Home Front During World War I

  • Aired: 04/18/2017

  • Rating: TV-G
Leslie Bellais, Curator of Social History at the WI Historical Society, discusses Wisconsin’s response to the United States entry into World War I. Wisconsin’s loyalty to the U.S. was questioned and the state became known as the “Traitor State” due to the anti-war sentiments of U.S. Senator Robert La Follette, the large German-American population and the active Socialist party.
