Remembering the Great War: 1914-1918

April 2017 - November 2018

Remembering the Great War: 1914-1918, is in the South Gallery and features artifacts ranging from historic photographs to patriotic posters to a U.S. Army captain’s uniform from the balloon corps to helmets to a silent film of American troops in France.

The centerpiece of the exhibit is the photographs, all taken by the Photographic Section of the French Army. How the photos came from France to Carson City isn’t known, but they were part of a larger collection acquired by the museum from Carson City history buff and collector Daun Bohall. This is the first time the images have been publicly displayed.
