World War I America

To commemorate the World War One Centennial, Randal Dietrich (Museum Director) and David Geister (Artist & Marine Veteran) conceived of a mural featuring 100 notable individuals who helped shape, or were shaped by, the Great War and had a hand making modern America.

The expansive 30 foot mural, inspired by the even larger Pantheon de la Guerre created by two French artists a century ago, is on permanent display in the museum's library. This lending library opened in 2018 and includes 15,000 books related to military history.
