Columbus, OH – 88 years ago, America was both proud and afraid of democracy. Just out of an unprecedented world war and still reeling from a global influenza pandemic, there was labor unrest, race riots, bombs being delivered in the mail, controversial domestic spying programs and attempts to limit free speech. Ohio native Ann Hagedorn has woven together some of the big themes and personal stories of America in 1919 in a new book called "Savage Peace - Hope and Fear in America." Hagedorn tells Alison Holm that 1919 really set the stage for the rest of the century.
