New K of C Museum exhibit marks 100th anniversary of World War I
Marking the 100th anniversary of the United States’ participation in the war, the K of C Museum’s exhibition, World War I: Beyond the Front Lines runs for the duration of America’s time in the conflict (April 6, 2017 – Dec. 30, 2018). The show provides a historical retrospective of the war and includes interactives, visuals and artifacts from the Knights of Columbus Museum collection and its Supreme Council Archives as well as many borrowed items from private lenders and organizations.
