February Programs

Wednesday, February 21,  10:45 a.m. – 12:00 noon Friends of the Montana Historical Society Public Program—Following World War I, Montanans struggled with the legacies left by the Progressive Era and the harsh political environment engendered by the war, drought put an end to the Homestead boom, and unions attempted to maintain their recent gains. In her presentation From Armistice to Aftermath: Post WWI Montana, MHS Reference Historian Zoe Ann Stoltz will examine these forces—both natural and manmade—that not only played important roles in the post-war era, but also helped define today’s Montana.
