MHA November Event - Manchester and the Great War.png

Join AARP NH and the Manchester Historic Association for a free webinar to learn more about the Great War and this pivotal time in history on November 18 at 11 am.

The impact of World War I on the city of Manchester will be the topic of a discussion called “Manchester and the Great War.” The program will be presented by MHA Research Director Daniel Peters, an Army veteran and Purple Heart recipient who was wounded in combat in Afghanistan. His work with the MHA collection regarding the war formed the basis of his thesis for his master’s degree in history at Southern New Hampshire University.
