A hundred years has passed since the World War I. So many wars and conflicts have been fought and continue to be during that timeframe that much of the war efforts both the fighting by soldiers and the massive support by citizens on stateside have been tucked away in scrapbooks and closets. But efforts are being made to open the books and storage areas especially with the centennial of the battles to break the Hindenburg Line (September 29) and Armistice (November 11) quickly approaching.
Photographs depicting these extraordinary moments have been collected by the Historical Society of Newburgh Bay and the Highlands and are being shared this summer through the end of the year in the tall glass vitrine display cases at Kaplan Hall at SUNY Orange in an exhibit entitled The World War I Home Front ”“ How Newburgh Supported the Colors.
Visitors may view the exhibit in July, Monday through Thursday 8 am to 5 pm and August 1-25 Monday through Friday 8 am to 5 pm; then, August 27 through December 14 Monday through Thursday 8 am to 9 pm and on Fridays 8 am to 6 pm.
