The Lamps Are Going Out All Over Europe…

imageToday, a 100 years ago, Americans awoke to read that England and most of Europe was at war. This possible conflict was in all of the US papers but no one thought it was going to go this far. This was Europe of Asquith and Grey. War was unthinkable.

Other than reading about it in the daily papers most Americans were glad we had the Atlantic Ocean and US Navy to protect us. It was Europe’s war not ours.

What were we concerned about in 1914? The Mexican border, Wall Street and Anarchists. Not a lot has changed in a 100 years.

In time Americans would join up against the wishes of our government and in less than three years we would be going over there officially.
