Answering America’s Call

Newport News in World War I

During the First World War, Newport News became a crucial military port, transporting men, weapons, and supplies to Europe.


Answering America’s Call: Newport News in World War I will look at the stories of those individuals who served locally, passed through the port, or lived on the Peninsula and how Newport News answered America’s call to arms.


Members are invited to enjoy a light brunch reception to meet our community partners, partake in family-friendly themed games, talk with curators, and get an up-close look with our Mariners’ Collection Highlight!
