In World War I, Connecticut demonstrated its manufacturing prowess once again, as it had for virtually every war since our nation’s founding. Factories across the state produced a wide range of provisions for the troops heading into battle.
Approximately 63,000 Connecticut residents served in the war, including America’s first air ace, a French-born resident of Wallingford, Major Gervais Raoul Lufbery who would die in the skies over his native land, but not before his reputation as a great hero was cemented in the nation’s consciousness.
