Espionage, Sabotage and Subversion: The War at home during World War One

May 24 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Event Navigation

In 1914 Americans were hoping to stay out of WWI but Germany was already planning an attack upon the United States.  It was a covert campaign of spying, sabotage and subversion that would touch every corner of the United States, including Connecticut.

The history of our involvement in World War One evokes images of Dough Boys fighting in the muddy battlefields of France. But there was another war that happened here.  As huge European armies mobilized in the summer of 1914, many Americans believes that a vast ocean and a powerful Navy would keep us out of the war.

The battle in the shadows was first joined by a handful of municipal police officers but it would eventually involve the Army, federal officials and tens of thousands of average Americans.  Tom Hogan has had a keen interest in military history for over 40 years.  His grandfather worked in Army Intelligence during World War 1.

Join us for this presentation on May 24 at 7:00 p.m. at the Bristol Historical Society.
