Norfolk, VA, 1917

This site is a class project for Norfolk State University’s History 380: U.S. Military History, with Dr. Stephanie Richmond.  Beginning in Fall 2016, students in this course will be posting historical narratives, biographies, photographs and other information about life in Norfolk, VA during World War I and the experiences of Norfolk’s servicemen and civilian workers during the war.

This project would not be possible without the support of the Sargeant Memorial Collection at the Slover Library, Norfolk Public Libraries.
