This two-part article documents World War I’s influence in the Lake Superior Basin, in both Canada and the United States. It examines how the Great War effected Native Americans, recent immigrants, and the host society, with an emphasis on rumored and actual sabotage activities. It likewise explores vigilantism and regional responses. The War also engendered food production, scrap metal drives, and other habits of resource. These and other activities, designed to further the war effort in the Lake Superior region, are also studied. Part Two of this article will appear in the following volume of Upper Country: A Journal of the Lake Superior Region.
