100 Years Ago . . .
The Reading Chronicle newspaper (located in Reading, MA) published letters from those who were serving in the war.
At Rye Jr. High, in Rye, NH, Ms. Adams' Social Studies class is learning about World War 1. The students read aloud the letters from people in the war. We recorded them so you could listen to the letters sent by soldiers and others in the war.
