Alexandrians Fight The Great War

Thursday, December 07, 2017, 10:00am - 05:00pm


About The Event

This exhibit shares some of the stories of Alexandrians during the war: their feelings about this nearly-incomprehensible world tragedy, their early efforts to help, and their more active participation in the American war effort after April, 1917. Many of us have ancestors who lived through this conflict and participated in some way, and the museum staff hopes this exhibition provides a renewed interest in and appreciation for their struggles and sacrifices, as well as the new role they helped to create for the United States on the world stage.

Exhibit includes rare Lusitania artifacts, period weapons, and archival video.
