No Man’s Land: East Texas African Americans in WWI will be traveling throughout Texas over the two-year centennial period (2017-2019). Come walk among the eleven thousand veteran names on display and learn their stories: men who died in combat, served as officers, unloaded ships, buried the dead, kept the sawmills going, trained for war on Texas college campuses, and in some cases, deserted. You will see the Great War–and possibly your own community–in a completely different light.
