wall display upstairs in Local History is all about Montgomery County’s
involvement in World War I.
letters from local soldiers are displayed, giving us a close-up view of what it
was like in the trenches. Soldiers’ pictures from the Crawfordsville High
School yearbook of 1918 display names that many of us may know from local
families that are still in our community. In the glass case are articles of clothing,
awards, and pictures of local soldiers in uniform. The display on the north wall shows community
involvement in the war effort. Many
local residents were involved in YMCA, Red Cross, and other volunteer efforts
during the World War I. There is also a
book display of available World War I books on a table by the desk.
