        Targeting German Americans | The Great War

        Examine the effects of anti-German sentiment that swept through the United States soon after the country entered World War I, in this video adapted from The Great War: AMERICAN EXPERIENCE.

This resource is a part of the The Great War: AMERICAN EXPERIENCE | Collection.
