In this post, students will learn about the thousands of American women who volunteered in World War I through their uniforms. Most of the women's uniforms in the Museum's collections from WWI belong to civilian relief and welfare organizations, like the Salvation Army, not to the armed forces, and represent the participation of tens of thousands of American women in the Great War. This post, written by Bart Hacker, Senior Curator of Armed Forces History, is published on the Museum's "O Say Can You See?" blog.
