This exhibit demonstrated the relevance of local history by showcasing the local stories in the greater context of World War I history. The exhibit was created to help our communities understand how West Central Minnesota had an important role in such a large event in the nation and the world’s history. Visitors to the exhibit go home with a sense of how their own history fits into a larger picture and with a more in-depth understanding of World War I history.
The exhibit has traveled throughout the 10 counties over the past five years.
