Description

This image of Union Station in Creston, Ohio as World War I depicts the importance of World War I soldiers to the economy and livelihood of a place. This image from 1916, before the United States had even declared war on Germany in 1917, shows that the United States had been using what resources they could to help Great Britain and other Allied forces. In 1915, the United States was already getting short on men who were able to work on the ever growing factories. American economic ties with the Allied powers is what would ultimately draw them to form an alliance both before entering the war officially and after entering and fighting against the Central powers. Wayne County, being a major railroad hub, would have large celebrations when men would come home from the War, as can be seen in this image.
