A century ago, world powers were in deep conflict. World War I hosted some of history's most devastating battles and has long reaching effects that shaped the 20th century.  Join us today as we look back on WWI and how countries have commemorated its centennial. 



On Thursday-Friday, October 27-28, the Ohio State University's Department of History, with the U.S. World War One Centennial Commission, will host "The War To End All Wars: U.S. National World War I Centennial Symposium, 1916-2016," a symposium marking the 100th anniversary of the war.
