Due to the winter storm, the Smithsonian’s National Zoo and museums in the Washington, D.C. area will be closed Wednesday, Feb. 20.
Using state of the art technology to restore original archival footage which is more than a 100-years old, Jackson brings to life the people who can best tell this story: the men who were there.
Using the voices of the men involved, the film explores the reality of war on the front line; their attitudes to the conflict; how they ate; slept and formed friendships, as well what their lives were like away from the trenches during their periods of downtime.
Experience more at the National Museum of American History. Before and after the film, head to the Price of Freedom exhibit on 3 East to see WWI artifacts.
