 In the 100 years since World War I, the term “doughboy” has come to refer exclusively to the soldiers of that war. However, the origins of that term go back to the infantrymen of General Scott during the war with Mexico. In this program, hear about the efforts of not only the infantrymen of World War I, but all of the doughboys in the war to end all wars. This program is part of the World War I and America, a two-year national initiative of Library of America presented in partnership with The Gilder Lehrman Institute of American History, the National World War I Museum and Memorial, and other organizations, with generous support from The National Endowment for the Humanities.
