New Jersey and The Great War

2017 will mark the 100th anniversary of America’s entry into World War 1. The NJ Historical Commission is proud to partner with the NJ State Archives, NJ State Museum, NJ Historic Preservation Office, Rutgers University, and the NJ National Guard Militia Museum on a website initiative to remember New Jersey’s unique and considerable contributions to the Allied victory in The Great War.

Part of the larger U.S. World War 1 Centennial Commission effort, the New Jersey-specific page not only features a historic overview, but continually updated WW1-related stories, calendar of events, and listing of WW1 sites across the state.
