It’s been 100 years since the United States entered World War I. Although the war began in August 1914 (and ended in November 1918), the United States stepped in during April of 1917. Since New York was so heavily involved in the war – this was the state that contributed the most number of soldiers, provided the most tons of supplies and raised the most money – a couple of efforts have been made to honor the centennial of WWI and, specifically, remember New York’s experience with WWI.
