Service and Survival: The American Soldier

July 12-November 2, 2019

Elkhorn Valley Museum’s new summer exhibition explores the life of the American soldier from the Civil War period through the 2000s, with objects that reveal stories of family, duty, and service.  On display will be items from the museum’s permanent collection, such as uniforms, equipment, documents, awards, photographs, letters, and more.  Service and Survival: The American Soldier centers on the individual soldier in a personal sense, highlighting for example familial and relational ties to others, knowledge obtained through military training, personal items and experiences, service to others, and demonstrations of faith.
