Westchester County Veterans Museum presents:
A War to End All Wars
One hundred years ago in 1917, the United States entered what was then known as the Great War, later to become known as World War I.
America was a relative newcomer to a war that had already been raging in Europe for three years and would end in 1918. In total the war killed over 16 million combatants and civilians. This exhibit displays some of the arms, uniforms and gear used at the time. In addition, the exhibit examines the new tech deadly weapons used for the first time in a coordinated fashion. The machine gun, poison gas, accurate artillery, the airplane, mines and much more resulted in industrial strength carnage on and off the battlefield.
