Celebrate this Presidents’ Day at the Woodrow Wilson Presidential Library and Museum Monday, February 15 from 12- 1 pm as Museum Curator Andrew Phillips examines the United Sates entry into World War I. Why did it take so long for the United States to enter the war? Was Woodrow Wilson a pacifist? Join Andrew in the Education Parlor of the Dolores Lescure Center to learn the answers to these and other question and travel the thorny road that was American neutrality. The presentation is free and open to the public. Light refreshments will be served.
In addition, the Presidential Library is pleased to offer free admission to children and students accompanied by an adult this Presidents’ Day, Monday, February 15, from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Guests will receive a guided tour of Wilson's birthplace, the Presbyterian Manse, the home provided by the church for the Reverend Joseph Ruggles Wilson and his family.
