Abstract

The information gathered by a historian conducting primary source research on the history of women’s activities in southwestern Minnesota during World War I will broaden and deepen the understanding of the Great War and the events connected to it. By focusing on the contributions of women in a particular geographical location, a piece is added to the larger historical puzzle of what was happening in the region, the state, and the nation during the conflict. It will also make a significant historical contribution by focusing on the activities of the female chapter of the Woodstock Home Guard, which has received little attention due to the overall ignorance of its existence.
