"Over There" and Over Here: Yates County In the Great War (1916-1919)
Over 600 Yates County men served in the First World War; thirty-four made the supreme sacrifice. Many were in the thick of the fighting along the Western Front from May to November 1918. In addition to anxiety over their friends and loved ones in Europe, the people on the home front had to deal with coal shortages, wheatless days, Liberty Loan drives, the flu epidemic, and spy scares, The Yates County community showed their support for the war effort in many ways, and when the Armistice was signed and the men came home, they showed their deepest appreciation to those who served.
