Join us and discover how the people of southwest Michigan contributed to the war effort both at home and on the battlefield. Exhibit visitors will learn about the life of a local soldier from recruitment to training camp, and arrival on the battlefield. Accounts are given of a nurse from Buchanan, young children’s roles in the war effort, as well as traditions established after the war for honoring those who served.
View artifacts from more than a dozen local collectors, as well as from the Grand Rapids Public Museum, the Center for History in South Bend, the Michigan Historical Museum and more.
Admission is $5 for adults, $1 for children ages 6-18, and children under 5 are free.
