  • Historic Fort Snelling

Commemorate the 100th anniversary of World War One at Historic Fort Snelling! The “Great War” — as WWI was called — had raged for three years before the U.S. entered the conflict in 1917. America's participation tipped the balance in favor of the Allied powers, and helped bring the war to an end on Nov. 11, 1918. The war shaped the course of world history, and as a result of its participation the U.S. emerged as a world power.

Explore the ways this conflict shaped the world we know today and learn about Minnesota's role in the “Great War.” Visit with costumed staff and reenactors, watch military demonstrations, learn about women during wartime, stand in a recreated WWI-style trench, and experience what life was like for Minnesotans during this crucial era.
