100 Year Ago This Week
Preface
The following section comes from the headlines and pages of the Official Bulletin - the government’s daily war gazette published by George Creel, President Wilson’s Propaganda Chief - We are republishing the daily issues on the centennial anniversary of their original publish dates at ww1cc.org/bulletin.
So for those who would like to follow the events of 100 years ago in the words and headlines of the times, as presented by the US government, we offer a unique and powerful way to follow the War That Changed the World.  We have the link in the podcast notes.
 
So now let’s jump into our wayback machine and take a look at one of the themes that pervaded the official bulletin 100 years ago this week.

Quote: America has fought always and everywhere in defense of principles and rights—never merely for territory and for power.

From Lesson 2: Making good as a soldier:
Quote: Loyalty, obedience, and physical fitness are the three basic
qualities essential to the making of a real soldier.

Lesson 3: Soldierly qualities
