Creation Date

1918

Description

In the autumn of 1914, enlistment efforts went beyond subtle calls to perform one’s patriotic duty. Clergymen frequently used their pulpits to urge young men to join up. Young women would carry white feathers, and pin them to the lapels of men who were not in uniform. Others refused to go on dates with men who had not enlisted.
