Author: Jessica A. Bandel

Hello dear readers! Allow me to formally introduce myself. My name is Jessica Bandel, and I am a research historian with the North Carolina Office of Archives and History. For the past six months, I have been publishing short stories and pieces on various topics relating to North Carolina’s World War I experience. But did you know that we have many, many more stories in a book published this year? North Carolina and the Great War, 1914-1918, is a 141-page, full-color publication featuring 84 period images and photographs of over 175 artifacts. Two-page articles cover a range of topics related to the war, highlighting the unique experience of the state's citizens.

Topics covered include:

  • North Carolinians at the Battle of Belleau Wood, breaking the Hindenburg Line, and fighting the war’s final pitched battle
  • Enemy U-boat operations off the Outer Banks
  • A Wilmington man’s harrowing experience during the Lusitania sinking
  • North Carolina women in the Army Nurse Corps and the United States Navy
  • Cherokee code talkers and their role on the field of combat
  • Key political figures, like Secretary of the Navy Josephus Daniels, House Majority Leader Claude Kitchin, and Ambassador to Great Britain Walter Hines Page
  • Manufacturing efforts throughout the state
  • Medal of Honor winners, including Henry Johnson, who posthumously received the commendation from President Barack Obama in 2015
