A coupe of years ago there were several threads asking if the Sesquicentennial of the Civil War had gotten the attention that it deserved.

Many compared the lower public interest in the CW150 compared to the 1976 Bicentennial and (arguably) to the 1961-65 CW100. My opinion was that comparing the CW150 to those two anniversaries ignored the many other important anniversaries over the last 50 years that have received less attention.

This week we begin the the Centennial of the U.S. entry into World War I. In parts of Europe this has been a major commemorative opportunity, although the NY Times noted that Russia has noticibly ignored the 1917 Russian Revolution.

I wanted to start a discussion about whether the WWI 100th is getting more attention in your part of the woods than the CW150 did. How do they compare?
