Now all roads lead to France and heavy is the tread
Of the living; but the dead returning lightly dance.

Recommended: The Online Exhibitions of the National World War I Museum, Part II

In 2018 I presented an article on the wonderful material made available online by the National World War I Museum in Kansas City.  I decided to revisit their site and discovered that there is even more material, especially imagery—paintings, drawings, posters and photos then I'd appreciated previously.   Here are some that I saw for the first time on my recent exploration.  At the bottom of the page, you will find a link to the homepage for accessing their online, past, and present exhibits.
