Description:

The First Sunday Lecture at Cape Fear Museum features Letters Home. On the 100th anniversary of the U.S. entrance into World War I, experience the conflict through a Wilmington soldier's eyes. In spring 1917, First Lieutenant Edward Manning Hardin volunteered for service and was sent to Europe with the 30th Division, alongside many other Port City citizens. Ed Hawfield, Hardin's grandson, talks about his service with the help of more than 150 letters the Lieutenant wrote home.
