The Mighty Men of War: Soldiers of Carthage in WWI
February 22, 2021 —
Adults are invited to attend a virtual presentation of Mighty Men of War: The Soldiers of Carthage in World War I, at
7 p.m. Tuesday, April 6.
In 1918, a company of soldiers from Jasper County, Missouri, took part in one of the bloodiest battles of the "Great War." Discussing his book, "A Machine Gunner in France," Jeff Patrick will examine the experiences of Capt. Ward Schrantz and his men, from their training camp in Oklahoma to France's Argonne Forest.
