The documentary film Anne Morgan's War tells the little-known story of how one American woman became an exemplary force in the recovery of Northern France’s World War I wartime devastation, and highlights the legacy of a woman in the vanguard of feminism and humanitarian action. From 1917 to 1924 a team of some 350 women, appalled by news of wartime destruction, left comfortable lives at home to volunteer in the devastated regions of France. Their dynamic leader was Anne Morgan (1873-1952), the wealthy daughter of the late financier Pierpont Morgan.
