Event Description

EXHIBITION EXTENDED - Closes January 27, 2019. Timed to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the American intervention in World War I, this exhibition showcases posters and flags used to stir patriotism and support the cause of war. It also explores unknown stories of New Jersey's role in the "War to End All Wars." These two important collections are rarely seen by the public. These never-before-exhibited flags, decorated with streamers commemorating famous battles, reflect the military history of two Army divisions in which many NJ soldiers served. The exhibition is part of the State's commemoration of the anniversary of American intervention into World War One, and is supported in part by the New Jersey State Museum Foundation through the Lucille M. Paris Fund.
