North Carolina in the Great War

WWI nurse's uniform at WWI exhibit

The Centennial of the First World War runs through November 2018. This traveling exhibit contains panels with information on both the soldiers abroad and the homefront here in North Carolina. It shares information on the various military installations in the state, discusses U Boat activity off the coast in 2018, and seeks to put the war in context. The panels can be placed in any order and configuration and are complemented by two mannequins. One, a soldier dressed in full uniform with weapon and complete backpack and gear, and a Red Cross nurse, dressed in a ward dress, apron, and cap with veil. Other props are available for loan and the complementary exhibit handbook contains information on the war in North Carolina and educational activities.

The exhibit schedule for 2017 is fully booked but there are still slots available in 2018.

Size: 10 retractable free-standing banners with addition of a soldier mannequin, a nurse mannequin, props, and educational interactives. Duration of Exhibit: 4-6 weeks

The Division of Education and Outreach has created a series of traveling exhibits on a variety of topics. The exhibits are often accompanied by programming ideas, additional reading materials, and other tools to assist host institutions in sharing the great stories of our State.
