In a tribute to victory acres, war bonds and heroic efforts in battle, a traveling exhibition commemorating the centennial of the U.S. entry into World War I opens at the Museum of the Cape Fear on Thursday, Oct. 5. The Museum of the Cape Fear will present this free exhibition of 10 informational panels and related artifacts through Nov. 12. It’s a great way to show appreciation for “The war to end all wars.” Fayetteville is the 11th site across the state to showcase the exhibit during the 2017 centennial.
"The museum feels fortunate to have the exhibit during the Veterans Day holiday, Nov. 11," says Leisa Greathouse, curator of education. "It was on the 11th hour, of the 11 day, of the 11th month that the armistice was signed to end "the war to end all wars," concluded Greathouse.
