Members of the Historical Commission’s exhibit committee have been working hard to prepare the Museum for Veterans Day. For our Veterans exhibit this year we focused on WWI. Hours and hours were spent looking through old Franklin Sentinal newspapers to collect wartime stories from the first World War. 2014 marks the 100th anniversary of the start of the war. The U.S. entered the war in 1917 and many Franklin men answered the call to arms. Visit the museum to learn of the brave young men from our town who fought to keep us all free.
In addition to our featured WWI exhibit, we have a permanent display of Franklin sons’s who served our country throughout the years. Above you can see the 4 Clark brothers who all enlisted to serve.
