The clips from the episode “Propaganda and Americanism” tell the story of how President Woodrow Wilson reluctantly led America into the bloodiest conflict the world had ever seen, thereby transforming the United States into a dominant player on the international stage. In an opportunity to learn from the past, see how the ardent patriotism and determination to support America’s crusade for liberty abroad led to one of the most oppressive crackdowns on civil liberties at home in American history.
The Great War, a three-part, six-hour documentary, premieres Monday, April 10–Wednesday, April 12, 8:00-10:00 p.m. on Nine PBS.
