National Archives at Atlanta
5780 Jonesboro Rd, Morrow, Georgia 30260
The holdings of the National Archives at Atlanta include approximately 10,000 cubic feet of records relating to the World War I home front. These records document the federal government's attempts at food conservation, promotion of the war effort, and the purchase of Liberty Bonds, as well as intelligence investigations by the U.S. Navy. Other historical records tell the story of the 24 million men who registered for the Selective Service and of other men who were prosecuted and incarcerated for violating the Espionage and Sedition Acts of 1917. This year’s symposium, The Great War Over Here: Stories from the Home Front, encourages research in these diverse records, features scholars whose published works were based on these holdings, and promotes the discovery of new scholars from universities and colleges across the Southeast and the nation.

Pre-registration is required. Registration is free and limited to 200 participants. Please visit archives.gov/atlanta/symposiums/wwi for more information and to register.
