The Los Altos History Museum is proud to be one of a handful of museums nationwide hosting a special exhibition created by the National Archives during the centennial observation of US involvement in World War I. The US involvement in World War I lasted from April 1917 until November 1918, but in that time almost 3 million U.S. soldiers were drafted.
