To Strike For Freedom: The 1916 Easter Rising
Dates: Tuesday, March 01, 2016 08:00am - 05:00pm

To Strike For Freedom: The 1916 Easter Rising
Dates: Tuesday, March 22, 2016 08:00am - 05:00pm

 The First World War and Knoxville: Through the Eyes of Harry Moreland explores the First World War through the personal military memorabilia of Moreland (1899–1969), a Knoxvillian and University of Tennessee Law School alum (1922) who enlisted with the 117th Infantry and deployed to the Western Front shortly after the United States entered the war on April 2, 1917. The mini-exhibition, mounted in honor of the 99th anniversary of the US entry into the war, sheds light on how the “Great War” affected so many, including those right here in Knoxville and at UT.

Dates: Thursday, March 31, 2016 08:00am - 05:00pm

 The First World War and Knoxville: Through the Eyes of Harry Moreland explores the First World War through the personal military memorabilia of Moreland (1899–1969), a Knoxvillian and University of Tennessee Law School alum (1922) who enlisted with the 117th Infantry and deployed to the Western Front shortly after the United States entered the war on April 2, 1917. The mini-exhibition, mounted in honor of the 99th anniversary of the US entry into the war, sheds light on how the “Great War” affected so many, including those right here in Knoxville and at UT.
