Remembering the War to End All Wars
Oxnard, CA:  Called “The Great War” and more optimistically “The War to End All Wars,” World War I was an event that changed the world’s political map and the fabric of civilization. To honor the 100th anniversary of the end of World War I, the Channel Islands Maritime Museum is unveiling its newest exhibit: WWI 100th Anniversary: History in the Making. The exhibit runs for a short time, Nov 10-19, 2018. Join us at the museum to see the exhibit of WWI artifacts and memorabilia as we remember the 13 million mainly young men whose lives were lost in WWI. 

 

The exhibit showcases from combatant nations, art medals and military decorations, as well as pictures,  to illustrate the events and effects of World War I politically, economically and socially.

Notable artifacts on display include rare military decorations (awarded for heroism) such as the U.S. Congressional Medal of Honor and the French Croix de Guerre; personal items soldiers carried in the field; dog tags, military badges, and insignia; propaganda and satirical medals.
