In 1914, the assassination of Archduke Franz Ferdinand, heir to the Austrian throne, sparked a chain of events that would lead to World War I. After the United States joined the call to arms in 1917, Texans were strongly behind the war effort. Almost 200,000 Texans saw service in the armed forces during the war, and 450 Texas women served as nurses. Texans at home raised money by buying Liberty Bonds, and women joined the workforce to manufacture products for war. War gardens were planted, food was rationed, and industries gave their resources to help with the fight. There was no question that the Lone Star State made its mark on the Great War. At ShopTSHA, we’d like to remember these efforts by featuring a collection of books that highlight Texas contributions to World War I. Check out our special spotlight products to learn all about this critical time in history.
