Help create content re WW I Centennial for OutHistory.org

OutHistory.org, the website on LGBTQ history, would like several scholars to create or direct the creation of an entry or entries relating to the Centennial of World War I. That war started in Europe on July 28, 1914. The U.S. Congress voted to declare war on April 6, 1917.

We’d like to publicly announce the entry online on July 1, 2014.

The entry or entries can include whatever inspires the creators.
