Relive the experiences of local citizens when you hear from the following speakers:
Upon declaration of war on April 6, 1917, the city of Redlands mobilized immediately. The local National Guard Company G departed on April 4 to Arcadia and quickly relocated to San Diego. Residents worked to establish a chapter of the American Red Cross and formed war committees through the YMCA, YWCA and Salvation Army. Thousands of residents pulled together to serve the war at home, donating their time and orchestrating bond drives. More than eight hundred locals served in the military, as Redlanders could be found fighting in every major battle involving American troops. 39 men and one woman paid the ultimate sacrifice.
