Although the United States remained neutral for most of the First World War, American involvement eventually proved decisive in ending the conflict. This website focuses on the involvement of West Point graduates in the United States war effort during the Great War. Through the use of brief biographies and objects from the museum's collections, students will learn how these men helped to mobilize the country for war and supply and lead the army in the field. America in the Great War is part of the online exhibition, West Point in the Making of America.
