Remembering the Great War:100th Anniversary of WWI
August 24, 2016 @ 9:30 am - 4:30 pm$4.00
The Johnson-Humrickhouse Museum is commemorating World War I with the special exhibit, Remembering the Great War: the 100th Anniversary of WWI. The exhibit features uniforms, medals, swords, ordnances, an assortment of regulation supplies, trench art and propaganda posters. Over 40 firearms—rifles, pistols, revolvers, lugers, and bayonets are included. A number of the displays focus on soldiers from Ohio. For example, Coshocton residents will enjoy seeing an officer’s uniform and quartermaster footlocker owned by Coshocton soldier J.D. Brode. Photos and medals from two other local soldiers, Oliver Buser and Friend Powell, will also be displayed. Buser and Powel served in the US 332nd Infantry Division, and their division helmet which features a griffin logo can be seen. Although military gear issued by the American, German, British and French governments constitutes most of the exhibit, personal items are also included. Remembering the Great War is on display from August 12th through December 31, 2016.
