June 6, 2018
The United States entered World War I, then a European conflict, as a result of aggression by Germany. Consequences of that decision are being felt 100 years later, according to Spencer Davis, guest speaker for the Chautauqua event held Thursday afternoon at the Cheyenne County Community Center. The program, entitled "Nebraskans and the Great War," was led by Peru State College history professor Spencer Davis. Peru State College is located in southeast Nebraska.
"We live with the consequences of the first world war," Davis said. "Four great empires collapsed because of World War I."
