This course is one of Mary Washington’s First-Year Seminars. We’ll be exploring the experiences of soldiers and their families after the Revolution, the Civil War, World War I, World War II, and Vietnam. The class will deal with the homecoming of soldiers, the emotional and physical impact of war, the attempt to reenter civilian life, and the role veterans played in politics and society. While the course will be centered on the soldiers and their families, it will also emphasize postwar societies and cultures.
