Sleeping With the Enemy

Record #:
For over a year, Madison County's Mountain Park Hotel served as a makeshift compound for World War I German prisoners of war. None had actually fought against the United States; they were civilians who had worked on German and Austrian merchant ships and were interned as “enemy aliens” when the United States entered the war on April 6, 1917. Hodge describes the internees' year at Hot Springs.
