Excerpt from Final Report of the State Council of Defense of Illinois, 1917 1918 1919: An Official Body Created by an Act of the General Assembly Approved by the Governor, May 2, 1917Sir:Herewith is submitted the final report of the State Council of Defense of Illinois for the entire period of its active life from the date of its creation on May 2, 1917.The Council's affairs were wound up and its activities terminated as soon as orderly procedure would permit after signing of the armistice on November 11, 1918; but, the Council having been created "for the duration of the war," a skeleton organization was maintained, to close up minor business details and to preserve the Council's identity, pending official termination of the war period by formal action of the President and Senate of the United States.Citizens of Illinois may be justly proud of the record of their state in the Great War. In men and money and materials - in products of the farm, the factory and the mine; in whole-hearted response to every call for service or sacrifice imposed by the time - Illinois gave to the nation and to the nations cause on a scale surpassing even her own best traditions and her rank in the union of states.The contribution of the State Council of Defense to that record cannot be separated from the record itself; for the war-time achievements of the state were, in large part, the composite result of efforts by the tens and hundreds of thousands of devoted men and women in all walks of life who worked under the direction of this Council. In summing up the results of their work, it is only fair to lay emphasis upon this fact: most of the work done under the Council's direction was of a kind that cannot be reduced to tables of statistics or expressed in definite terms; for, in war time as at no other time, momentous results are often the product of efforts that cannot be weighed, measured, or even approximately estimated.In the opinion of the State Council of Defense, the superlative contribution of Illinois to the national resources during the war was uninterrupted social and industrial peace. It is no secret now that conditions existed in our state at the beginning of the war which were the occasion of grave concern.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
