When the United States entered World War 1 in 1917 over 5,500 Lawrence residents enlisted or were drafted into military service. About 200 residents lost their lives in the war and 35 of those residents were given special recognition by city officials with a bridge, park, square, or building named after them. The Lawrence World War 1 Project tells the stories of these 35 residents - stories that have been lost over the years. In watching these short tribute videos, may we never forget their sacrifice and service.
