Complete Your Passport and Receive a Prize
In 1919, more than 80,000 people from the greater Kansas City community raised $2.5 million in 10 days to build the Liberty Memorial, a majestic monument honoring those who served in World War I. As the world commemorates the Centennial of the Great War, once again, the Kansas City community unites to recognize the enduring impact of the world’s first global conflict. Journey through the area and be inspired to remember, engage and learn about the experiences of World War I and how relevant and meaningful they are in present day.
