Honoring Memorial Day and World War I at the GBHS Museum

with No Comments

Take a look above to see a picture of the Great Barrington War Memorial that was planned . . . but never built! It’s only one of a whole new group of World War I memorabilia that the Great Barrington American Legion donated to the Society for its display honoring Memorial Day.

We have a complete file of all issues of The Stars and Stripes, the official newspaper of the American Expeditionary Force, from February 8th 1918 to June 13th 1919.
