Join Wisconsin Historical Society Press author Richard Pifer as he discusses his new book, "The Great War Comes to Wisconsin: Sacrifice, Patriotism, and Free Speech in a Time of Crisis". Pifer will touch on the American homefront experience through a Wisconsin lens: the political debates over war policy, the worry over loved ones fighting overseas, the countless everyday sacrifices, and the impact of a wartime hysteria that drove dissent underground.
