This image of a parade of World War I veterans coming home after fighting overseas showing that having soldiers return to what was “normal” to them before the war would not be possible for all people and all soldiers. Soldiers were celebrated as they came home from war, for fighting against the evil that was prevalent throughout much of Europe, however the return to normalcy that many wished soldiers to return to would not come easily. The mass destruction that took place across seas, as well as the change in the economy in the United States wold take time to recover to their formal glory and continue to build. While prosperity was present soon following the war, the long term effect of the war on the United States economy would eventually lead to the downturn of the economy of the nation as well as the entire world. The depiction on World War I veterans marching in a parade as they came home in Shreve, Ohio would not last very long.
