For All We Have and Are
Regina and the Experience of the Great War
For All We Have and Are makes an important contribution to the growing literature on how communities on the home front experiences The First World War. For many Reginans, the fight against German militarism merged with the struggle against social evils and the “Big Interests,” adding new momentum to the forces of social reform, including the fights for prohibition, women’s suffrage, and language rights in public schools. Using newspaper archives, memoirs, and letters, James M. Pitsula looks at how issues such as class, anti-immigration actions, volunteer movements, local politics, and the social gospel played out against the backdrop of the war overseas.
