"Their book ... Answering the Call: Erie County, Pennsylvania in World War One which examines how the people of Erie County met the challenges of that war, whether in the military or at the home front."

Our presenters tonight are the editors of the book sponsored by the Erie County, Pennsylvania, World War One Centennial Committee, Answering the Call: Erie County, Pennsylvania in World War One. Few events in history have created such change as the First World War and the effects are still relevant today. Answering the Call, Erie County, Pennsylvania in World War One, examines how the people of Erie County met the challenges of that war, whether in the military or at the home front. Please join us for a what appears to be a great presentation and discussion.
