This program uses sheet music from the early 20th century to examine the evolution of national sentiment during the Great War. From anti-war songs "(“I Didn’t Raise My Boy to Be a Soldier”) to those bolstering support of the war effort "(“Over There”), it is clear that songs are more than a form of entertainment; they are cultural touchstones used to convey ideas, inspire patriotism, reward sacrifice, and encourage loyalty.
