The Great War or World War I had an impact at home, not only during wartime, but for years to come. Given the success and public reaction to its recent exhibitions and programs focused on World War I, as well as its broad-based artifact and archival collections from the Great War, artifacts from these popular exhibits have been moved to permanent display for 2018 to commemorate the end of the war on Nov 11, 1918.
Artifacts, featured in People of the Plains
, include military uniforms and items such as helmets and canteens.
PPHM will have a separate World War I exhibition at the Historic Federal Building. Click here to learn more.
