My name is Ashley McGhee. I am a student at UNC-Asheville in Western North Carolina in my sophomore-junior-ish year. I am a History major, with a plan to minor in Environmental Studies. A former nurse, I’m not the typical college student. My hobbies are as varied as my schooling- I run, love to read, avidly hike and spend time outdoors, consider myself a schoolwork nerd, and enjoy eating good food and drinking good beverages. This is a blog regarding the time period during World War I and the effect it had on both my college town as well as the surrounding areas.
