Two Brothers: Stories from the Front Lines of World War I
Presented by Cape Ann Museum at Cape Ann Museum
April 13, 2013
Archaeologist and Curator Timothy Kendall shares the story of his grandfather and great-uncle who volunteered as ambulance drivers in the American Field Service during World War I. Serving in the Balkans and France, respectively, the Boston-born brothers documented their experiences in photographs and journals.
Gloucester resident Abram Piatt Andrew founded the American Field Service with Beauport's Henry David Sleeper. Following the talk at 2:30 p.m. is a viewing of Our American Boys at War in Europe, the film Sleeper used to recruit both volunteers and funds for the effort.
