This thesis examines how state and federal policies related to food rationing, volunteer efforts, and political environment affected the daily life of Minnesota residents, such as the family of Charles A. Lindbergh, during the First World War. It was then used with the established methodology for living history programming to create a program at the Charles Lindbergh House and Museum. In addition to learning about the past, the program helps guests make personal connections between the historical content and their lives.
