This is an exhibit not about the First World War, rather it is an exhibit about Southeast Ohioans who supported the war effort and how the conflict affected their lives. It attempts to capture and relate the experiences of men and women from across Southeast Ohio. The First World War brought about great change to Southeast Ohio as well as the rest of the country, and even the world. It marked the end of one era, and the beginning of the next. For many Southeast Ohioans, it was the first time they were involved directly in events on a global scale. Their actions during the war changed their lives in countless different ways, and they shared their stories about wartime experiences for years to come. Now, with no veterans of the First World War left to speak for themselves, this exhibit attempts to share their stories. This is an evolving exhibit. During the course of the 2017-2019 First World War centennial, information panels and uniforms in the exhibit will change to reflect anniversaries and important topics relating to Southeast Ohio during the war. With any luck, every time you visit this exhibit there will be something new see.
