WWI HISTORY: The Conscientious Objectors of WWI

This April the Doylestown Bookshop will be partnering with the Doylestown Historical Society to host events through the month of April as a precursor to The World War I Commemoration programming the DHS will celebrate throughout the town in May 2017. This year the focus is on World War I, specifically the role that Doylestown and its citizens played in the Great War. In order to honor the past and all those who were touched by the war, we will be hosting four speaking events here at the Doylestown Bookshop with hopes of providing a space for reflection and education. For other events in this series, please visit our WWI History Series page.

Journals and Letters from Conscientious Objectors from WWI
