[Editor’s Note: Considering this is the land of the “Bloody Buckets” and Bethlehem Steel was the largest shipbuilder of the time and armored the the modern Navy, it is surprising how little interest our state or its government have shown in the 100th anniversary of a war which dramatically changed us once again. This war completed our ascendance as world power in both the business and military senses of the word. We Americans tend to think that what is, always was, because we rarely put our ear to the rail of history. It is not so. And history is useful towards the learning of what works and does not work, if this special nation is to avoid arrogance. If you know a high school history teacher or a history or sociology professor, you might want to mention this symposium to them. ]
