Have World War I Artifacts?

We Want to See Them: Saturday, January 16, 2016
2:00 – 5:00 p.m. at the Museum

Have any WWI artifact you’d like to learn about? If so, Georgia Southern’s Department of History and the Museum seek to learn more about the impact of WWI on the state of Georgia and are asking for anyone with artifacts from that era to bring them on Jan. 16 from 2-5 p.m. to the Georgia Southern University Museum. GSU faculty and museum curators will be on hand to help provide more information on the items. They are asking for Georgians to bring their artifacts, documents, photos, or stories to share with Georgia Southern’s faculty and museum curators 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 home front.

Missed this event, but you still have WWI artifacts you’d like to share and discuss? Then call the Museum’s Director, Dr. Brent Tharp at 912-478-5444 or email him at btharp@georgiasouthern.edu
