America, Alsace, and Peacemaking 1919

Hosted by NE Historic Genealogical Society & BSSCA

Tuesday, March 26, 2019 from 6:00 PM to 7:30 PM EDT
New England Historic Genealogical Society
99 Newbury Street
Boston, MA 02116

T Stop: Copley

     We are excited to announce the return to Boston of author/historian, Dr. Michael Neiberg. 

On March 26, New England Historic Genealogical Society and Boston/Strasbourg will host a talk by
Dr. Neiberg on the
America, Alsace, and Peacemaking 1919


In the fall of 1917 Woodrow Wilson formed a group of academics to collect data from every corner of the globe relevant to the peace process. Sixteen of the reports of this group, called the Inquiry, discussed Alsace-Lorraine; only two even considered returning the "lost provinces" to France. Although the return of Alsace-Lorraine looks inevitable in hindsight, American attitudes toward the provinces reveal much about the confusion and wide open possibilities of the period between the armistice and the signing of the Treaty of Versailles.

Reception: 6:00 - 6:30 PM
Talk - 6:30 - 7:15
Questions: 7:15 - 7:30 
Admission:  $30

Early registration is advised; the success of Dr. Neiberg's last Boston talk on The Saverne Affair promises that this will be a sold-out event.
