From the Home Front to The Front Lines: New Scotland in World Wars I and II
The exhibit highlights the contributions of New Scotland residents who served in the military and depicts life on the home front during those crucial years. Artifacts, documents and reminiscences bring the era to life.
The opening marked the unveiling of the recently conserved New Salem Honor Roll Banner from WWI. The exhibit includes a pictorial Honor Roll of New Scotland Veterans, which will continue to be added to as long as the exhibit is open, creating an important document for the future. In addition, the NSHA is working with theOral History Program of the NYS Military Museum and Veterans Research Center in Saratoga Springs to set up interviews with New Scotland Veterans to record their personal military histories. The exhibit opened on April 29, 2007 and will be in place until the last weekend of March in 2008.
