THC Marker Dedication

Please join us on Tuesday, November 13 for the dedication of a Texas Historical Commission Marker commemorating Texas A&M’s participation in World War I.  The event will take place at 10 a.m. in the Academic Plaza (west side of the Academic Building).

The marker highlights the commitment Texas A&M and its Former Students made in the fight against tyranny during the Great War, and some of the unique events that took place on campus during the war.

The location of the Academic Plaza was chosen for its significance to the activities that were going on on the A&M Campus during the war.  The Academic Building, Nagle Hall, Bolton Hall,  and Leggett Hall were all used as part of the military training that took place on campus, either as classroom space or housing for soldiers.
