Introduction 'The Finest Type of Manhood': Local Government and the Grounding of White Manhood Picking 'The Flowers of American Manhood': Local Draft Boards and Their Communities 'The Darkness in Georgia': State Selective Service in Georgia A Man is No Man That is Not Willing To Fight: State Selective Service in Illinois 'He's His mother's Boy; Go and Get Him': State Selective Service in New Jersey 'But No Negroes': State Selective Service in California 'The Final Report'
During World War I the U.S. demanded that all able-bodied men work or fight. White men who were husbands and fathers, owned property or worked at approved jobs had the benefits of citizenship without fighting. Others were often barred from achieving these benefits. This book tells the stories of those affected by the Selective Service System.
