Issue #4 - Michigan Goes to War
The stories in this issue of Michigan History for Kids are about how people deal with conflicts. A conflict is when people fight over something. Some conflicts are between a few people. Other conflicts involve many people or countries from all over the world. Those big conflicts are called wars. Life is very hard for people during war. Many soldiers (sohl-jurs) who are sent to fight are hurt or killed. People during wartime have to make tough choices. And, sometimes during war, people don’t always treat each other fairly. Learning about conflicts in the past helps you deal with conflicts in the present. The lives of people in Michigan have been changed by war for a long time. Within these pages you will learn about some of those brave people.
