The Monclova Historical Foundation invites you to join us on Wednesday, July 25th at 7:00pm for our next History Lecture – From Over Here to Over There: WW1 From the Home Front featuring Kathy Dowd.

To help commemorate the 100 year anniversary of WWI, historian Kathy Dowd will speak about the Great War (1914-1918) and how women here on the home front did their part to help support “our boys over there”. Come learn about the role women played in winning “the war to end all wars”.
