Twin Ports Region

Most women who were part of the Red Cross or other volunteer agencies were involved in sending things overseas to their soldiers or conserving things and keeping things running at home. Below is a photo of the Red Cross Women of Duluth, and there are a number of pages under the Twin Ports Region heading that will help you learn about shipping, local news, and area voices of the Great War.
