Build this army up strong !

Some facts !

August 1914 , War War 1 began. The government was expecting at least 100,000 men


to join the fight, but they received 750,000 volunteers in just one month.


Propaganda was the blame for the success in drafting men to go to war. Men had to leave


their homes, wives, and children just to join the war. These men had to register stating all


their information.

My opinion on Drafting in ww1

I think that drafting in WW1 wasn't a bad thing. The government was just


just trying to support America the best that they could. The men that were drafted


volunteered willingly, they new of the risks, and that may not come back. They believed


they hand to job to do, in protecting the country. They thought that being in the war


war something to be proud of and the people back home honored them for the work.


Women and children were with out a father figure in the home and times were harder.


They set up bonds and food rations just to help out as well as the propaganda posters all


around encouraging the men to go and fight for their country.
