Wiggins Jr. Prior to the declaration of war in April of 1917, Delaware was a pastoral collection of farms and merchants; afterward, however, it transformed into an economically thriving society. The nation's first state became a bustling hub of patriotic spirit and manufacturing prowess upon America's 1917 entrance into the conflict.
Perhaps for the first time, the wartime efforts of Delaware are chronicled in one exciting volume, offering readers an insider's peek at the indispensable contribution of the Northeastern state with a selection of exciting century-old photography and thoroughly researched narrative. 160 pages, 46 B&W photos, 6"x 9", softcover.
