The Great War hit close to home
When the Great War, World War I hit all over the world, it was also felt at home. Many local boys were called and responded to the call to fight for their country.
In fact, “The Entire Southwest Minnesota Region” was heavily involved in the war effort in just about every way imaginable.
Now, a new World War I exhibit is traveling throughout the region and it will be at the Lyon County Museum in Marshall from December 10 to January 18.
The new exhibit displays how this great war affected the people of West Central Minnesota.
Many made the supreme sacrifice for the cause of democracy, and it wasn’t only the soldiers fighting the battles.
The Lyon County Museum is located at 301 West Lyon St. in Marshall.
The project has been financed in part with funds provided by the State of Minnesota, from the Arts and Cultural Heritage Fund through the Minnesota Historical Society.
