Over There: Life in Jamestown During WWI Exhibit

05Apr2017

Cost -

Join us the evening of April 5th at 6 PM for a formal reveal of the Fenton History Center's spring exhibit: "Over There: Life in Jamestown During WWI". The evening's program will include an introduction to the exhibit, stories about life in Jamestown during the Great War, military advances of WWI and why WWI is still relevant today. The program is expected to last one hour, is free and open to the public. Donations will, however, be graciously accepted.

The song "Over There" by George M. Cohan held much prestige in the hearts of the citizens of the United States, as it was recognized as "your song, my song, and our boys’ song" during World War I. April 6th will mark the 100th anniversary of the day that the United States officially declared war on Germany in the fourth year of World War I.

"Over There: Life in Jamestown During World War I" will take an intimate look at how the first world war impacted Jamestown, New York specifically.

The exhibit officially opens to the public during the Fenton History Center's regular museum hours at 10 AM on April 6, 2017 to commemorate the official anniversary of the day the United States entered WWI and will stay on display until September 23rd.
