Buffalo, New York– On April 6, 2017, The Buffalo History Museum will premiere its new World War I exhibit, For Home and Country, marking the 100th anniversary of American involvement in World War I.

During the war, our nation lost nearly 117,000 of its bravest men and women. The exhibit will commemorate the sacrifice of 968 lives from Western New York.

Guests will explore their stories and view rarely before seen artifacts from the collection including home front advertising, uniforms, and weaponry. A faux-bunker installation will honor the soldiers of the decisive Meuse-Argonne Offensive and a memorial wall within the exhibit will give remembrance to each man and woman who gave the ultimate sacrifice.

The exhibit For Home and Country will run for two years, closing April 2019. The coinciding WWI propaganda poster exhibit in the State Court, Paper Bullets: The Posters That Sold The Great War will close in December 2017.
