St. Mary’s University students in San Antonio are producing a variety of short videos on Texas during the Great War. As part of the university’s Public History program, Dr. Teresa Van Hoy’s students have created “microdocumentaries,” each 5-8 minutes in length on various subjects including Texas WWI training camps, San Antonio during WWI, and the persecution of German-Americans during the war period. One student film is narrated in French and documents the role of the 36th Infantry Division, an American division that fought in the Meuse Argonne offensive attached to the French Fifth Army. These videos have received official endorsement by the National Commission and bear the WWICC logo.
