Centenary of US Entry of the Great War
On 6th April 1917 while still fighting a home land war on its southern border & after receipt of the intercepted Zimmerman Telegram the United States entered the Great War declaring hostilities against Germany. This Centenary was marked at the Guildhal London by the launch of the 'Fields of Battle, Lands of Peace' exhibition attended by the Lord Mayor of London and Lew Lukens, US Charge d'Affairs.
