Westchester Veterans Museum presents 100 Years after WWI
Gone was traditional man-to-man combat, with its small guns and sneak attacks by ground troops. Harnessing the industrial know-how of combustion engines, airplanes, and even the camera, WWI introduced game-changing weapons of mass destruction: armored tanks, chemical weapons, submarines, and the aerial bombardments of cities.
History coming alive!
As you stroll through various exhibits and examine the historical vehicles and artifacts, take the time to chat with some of the re-enactors throughout the park. Recreating history, teaching the general public about history and the events they portray, and remembering the Veterans of the conflicts. Its also a LOT of fun!
Children should be encouraged to speak and ask questions to our living historians as they stroll from exhibit to exhibit. Not only is it fun for children to learn but they can collect wrist bands as they gather facts about our nations history from each exhibitor or re-enactor!
Enjoy jazz artist Kristina Koller who has developed quickly into a highly individual vocalist. Her sound is both timeless and contemporary. As a composer, Kristina melds diverse genres of music into her songs. While she loves singing standards and straight ahead jazz, Kristina also enjoys arranging tunes in unusual ways, knowing that adding to the legacy of jazz is much more important than merely recreating the performances of others. She reinvents classic material while retaining their essence, putting her own winning personality and fresh ideas into the lyrics that she interprets.
