November 6, 2017 – This week, our time machine travels back to a time when the United States fought its first major overseas conflict, joining a fight idealized as making the world safe for democracy. Our guide on this journey is Margaret E. Wagner, a senior writer/editor in the Library of Congress Publishing Office. She brings us America and the Great War: A Library of Congress Illustrated History.
This book is almost an art history museum sitting on your coffee table, offering up over 250 images, along with 4-color illustrations — many never seen before. Margaret Wagner has applied the talents she put into her previous books, The Library of Congress Illustrated Timeline of the Civil War; The American Civil War: 365 Days, and, World War II: 365 Days. She’s also co-author of The Library of Congress Civil War Desk Reference and The Library of Congress World War II Companion.
