Georgia Southern Museum- WWI exhibit

Georgia Southern History Faculty and Museum Curators seek

World War I Artifacts

Georgia Southern University’s Department of History and the Georgia Southern Museum seek to learn more about the impact of World War I on the state of Georgia and are asking for anyone with artifacts from that era to bring them on Jan. 16, from 2 to 5 p.m., to the Georgia Southern Museum.

Georgia Southern’s faculty and Museum curators ask that Georgians bring any artifacts, documents, photos or stories to share as they seek to learn more about the experiences of Georgia’s soldiers, the importance of training camps and war industries in the state, and the experiences of those on the homefront. They will be on hand to provide more information on the items.

The Georgia Southern Museum’s current exhibit, “The Great War that Changed the World: 1914-18,” centers around the First World War and the Museum plans to further explore the war with a future exhibit in 2017, “The Great War that Changed Georgia: 1917-18,” focusing on how the war impacted the state of Georgia.

The Museum is located at 2142 Southern Drive in the Rosenwald Building on the campus of Georgia Southern University. For questions or more information, contact Brent Tharp, Ph.D., at 912-478-5444.
