The Arlington Historical Museum continues its commemoration of World War I with its temporary exhibit on the 13 Arlington men who died in that war. Visitors can read the all-too-brief biographies of each man, view photos of the men and where they trained in Virginia, and see a time line of their lives amid the events of World War I. This exhibit will continue through Veterans’ Day
AHS historians conducted research in 2014 on each of the men listed on Arlington’s war memorial in Clarendon. Ultimately information was pieced together about 12 of the 13 men. If you know more about any of them. please let AHS know at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The museum also has exhibits that cover all of Arlington history from Native Americans to 9/11.
