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.
