Comments on the article[edit]

It's coming along well! Some thoughts:

  • This isn't a big deal, but remember that you only want to report the facts, not prove a point. It's a small but noticeable difference from normal history papers, where you want to formulate a thesis and prove it.
  • The citations should be after the period, ie like this: Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipisicing elit, sed do eiusmod tempor incididunt ut labore et dolore magna aliqua.[1] I've changed this for you. :)
  • "Over 21 million people were killed or injured in World War I; in many cases, all of the men in one family were killed, cities were destroyed, and family life was greatly impacted"
    • May want to clarify just where you are talking about, as no cities in the US were destroyed!
  • "Between the years 1870 and 1910 ..."
    • Why does this matter? WWI didn't start until 1914
  • "Over the course of the war, the United States mobilized 4.3 million men and endured an estimated 350,000 casualties"
    • How many mobilized were actually sent into combat? How many were killed/how many injured?
  • "Additionally, many of these men were not very old when they left for war; many were in their teens and most were under the age of 30."
    • "Many" and "most" is redundant. I'd suggest "many were in their teens and virtually all were under the age of 30." if it's supported by your source (I'm not sure how true that is statement is, so you better check :)
  • "During this time, post-traumatic stress was considered cowardice, and many men were shot for showing weakness"
    • When was this? In/after a battle? I've never heard of this.
  • "Additionally, weapons advanced and new technologies such as the Zeppelin, a German airship, which could release a number of bombs at one time, created huge casualties and made war even deadlier than before"
    • Do you mean 'advanced weaponry'? More examples of these deadly weapons would be good, namely the introduction of the machine gun.
  • You say "World War I altered education in the United States through of federal programs offered and curriculum changes.", then move to patriotism and nationalism, which are not federal programs nor curriculum?
  • What is the "History World International" reference referring to? I don't see it in the bibliography.
  • The Politico reference ("Woodrow Wilson Endorses Women's Suffrage on Sept. 30, 1918") could be replaced by a New York Times article, I'll bet (which I think would be a better source). Try searching their archives here, but be sure to use the advanced search to limit the date to September/October 1918.
  • I hate to do this to you, but http://www.historylearningsite.co.uk/FWWcasualties.htm ("First World War Casualties") isn't reliable under Wikipedia's guidelines. Any chance you can find a book at your library or on Google Books' limited/full preview that gives the same information? This Signpost article may be of use here, as might the editorial I wrote in the last Military history Project newsletter (at the bottom).

It's coming along well! If I can suggest, I would look at the World War I article and other similar topics and try to emulate the way they present their information. Don't forget to create an introduction! :) —Ed (talkmajestic titan) 05:51, 5 March 2010 (UTC)

Hello again! Ruth asked me to drop by to help you with citation templates. Basically, they are an easy way to format your references Wikipedia-style. To see how {{cite book}} is used in practice, click here. Other templates you can use are {{cite web}}, which is for web sites, and {{cite journal}}, which is for journals, and {{cite news}}.
Having said all of that, your current usage of Chicago style is also fine (I did that myself while writing North Carolina-class battleship). Your choice! :) —Ed (talkmajestic titan) 05:41, 11 March 2010 (UTC)
Also, BoyScoutStuff.com is probably not reliable... :/ —Ed (talkmajestic titan) 05:42, 11 March 2010 (UTC)

Effect of World War I on Children in the United States[edit]

I've assessed the article as Start-class for the military history project, but I have a question for you concerning the peer review you ask for: There are two seperate avenures for a peer review on Wikipedia, one run by the encyclopdia in general and one run exclusively by the military history project. When I looked at the talk pages you had the PR templates for both process on the talk page, but at the moment the only PR you have filed was the later of the two options listed above. For this reason I removed the PR template at the top of the page, but to be safe I wanted to determine if you were really interested in have both Peer Reviews run for the article. TomStar81 (Talk) 05:35, 13 April 2010 (UTC)

Are you still working on this article? I still have some concerns regarding citations. Please keep me posted. I believe that the 28 days for a normal review cycle expire soon. Please let me know how you want to proceed here MisterBee1966 (talk) 07:53, 5 May 2010 (UTC)
