American Intervention in Russia
Atlanta Constitution | 16 July 1918
“The protest of the Lenine government against the entente
operations in the north is believed to have been a mere formality made possibly
to satisfy the Germans, who are endeavoring to control the Bolshevik government.
Officials say it will not be entertained because the entente does not recognize
the Bolshevik as the real government of Russia and persists in regarding the
nation as still in the war on the side of the entente, regardless of the peace
treaty of Brest-Litovsk.”
Anne Halsey lives in Central Texas with her husband and three small children, where she is writing a work of creative nonfiction about her great-grandfather. Grounded in extensive archival research and personal interviews, this book-length project reconceives our understanding of the modern decline of Puritan New England culture. That seemingly familiar narrative is complicated by the previously unsung narratives of the women who found increasing independence and autonomy as their culture struggled to adapt to a more secular age.
For six years, Anne served as Media Director at the Poetry Foundation in Chicago, where she created numerous radio, television, web, podcast, print, and film partnerships with major media outlets. She earned her bachelor’s degree from Macalester College in St. Paul, Minnesota, and her MFA in poetry at New York University.
