Lincoln Land Community College will host the community education workshop “Illinois in the Great War” Wednesday, October 11 at the LLCC Taylorville Campus. The workshop will focus on the state and Central Illinois’ role in World War I.
Dr. Chris McDonald is a professor of political science at LLCC and will be leading the workshop. He says Central Illinois played multiple roles in the Great War.
McDonald believes that World War I is often overlooked in American history, even though he believes it played a huge role in making the United States what it is today.
