World War I: The Role of North Carolinians in World War I

Teaching Digital North Carolina was a project that created tutorials ands lesson guides for students and teachers using online primary resources held in cultural repositories through North Carolina. The repositories were mined through the Digital Public Library of America for topics on North Carolina business and industry, civil rights and liberties, and World War I. In the process of identifying and selecting primary sources on these topics, more than 200 images were considered for use. The URLs to those images are included in spreadsheets that may provide other areas of study.

The subjects covered include:

  • Business and Industry
  • Liberties and Rights
  • World War I
