Armistice Day Program-Speakers and Exhibits
Please join us at the Bozeman Public Library November 11th from 1:00 to 4:00 to celebrate the 100th Anniversary of Armistice Day. This year marks the 100th Anniversary of the end of World War I.
A series of speakers will discuss the effects of the war in Gallatin County, the role that wheat played in the Great War, and how the war has been remembered in Germany and Great Britain. The Museum of the Rockies and several individuals will have artifacts from the Great War on display, and we encourage the public to bring any mementos or objects they have. Historians and curators will be available to talk about the materials of the Great War.
This special event is being held in conjunction with the Gallatin History Museum and MSU Center for Western Lands & People fall 2018 collaboration, “Memories and Legacies of World War I - Commemorating the Armistice". Additional community support provided by MSU Library, the Bozeman Public Library, MSU Department of History and Philosophy, Bozeman High School, and the Museum of the Rockies.
