Event Description

A traveling exhibit that remembers the witness of peace-minded people against the First World War 1914-1918, including men and women, religious believers and secular humanitarians, political protesters and sectarian separatists. They resisted U.S. involvement in the war, the enactment of military conscription, the war bond drives, and the denial of freedom of speech under the Espionage and Sedition Acts. For this resistance many suffered community humiliation, federal imprisonment, and mob violence at the hands of a war-crusading American Public. This exhibit lifts up the prophetic insights and the personal courage of World War I peace protesters, and suggests parallels to the culture of war and violence in our world today. ​ Kauffman Museum is open Tues-Fri 9:30-4:30, Sat-Sun 1:30-4:30. Closed Mondays and major holidays. Admission.
