West Virginians who served their nation and the things they brought home are being honored at the Great Hall of the Culture Center in Charleston.
“West Virginians Answering the Call” will run through July 11th.
Charles W. Morris is director of museums for the state Division of Culture and History. He tells the Charleston Daily Mail the exhibit has attracted school groups and out-of-state visitors.
All branches of the military are covered and every war documented.
The exhibit includes the expected – uniforms, guns, helmets, hats, shells, swords and medals. But visitors will also see personal items. They include a cigarette case and a Bible with notes in it written by a soldier.
