The Graves of August: Laurel Hill's Role in Great War 100 Years Later


On June 28, 1914, Archduke Franz Ferdinand and his wife Sophie were assassinated by Serbian Nationalist Gavrilo Princip. What followed was a war the likes of which the world had never seen nor imagined. Called The Great War, for few could ever fathom a second one like it at the time; it sent young men to the muddy trenches from the far as Rissington, New Zealand to as near as 125 Mifflin Street in Philadelphia. Join us as we commemorate the outbreak of the war that changed technology, culture, warfare and the world. We will visit the graves of the soldiers who sacrificed their youth, years, and in many cases their lives, to bring the world back from the brink of utter chaos and destruction.
