The Hugo Frank Wallner Great War Digital Library (GWDL) is dedicated to covering a largely forgotten event from world history: World War I. The collection places particular emphasis on the American experience in the Great War as portrayed through both the visual and performing arts. With a diverse complement of resources, it's the intent of the GWDL to offer a colorful and insightful window into a past event that changed the course of world history and continues to affect us today. All items within the collection are in the public domain and were drawn from both Sacramento, California's, Hugo Frank Wallner Great War Archives and various private and public sources. We appreciate your visit to the GWDL, one of the world's premier online resources for Primary Source Content on America in the First World War.
