WWI Exhibit Honors WI Soldiers at Neville Museum

By Katie Kozak. CREATED Feb 7, 2014

 GREEN BAY -- This year marks the 100th anniversary of the beginning of World War I.

The Neville Public Museum in Green Bay has created a special exhibit called A World at War and commemorates the events, places, and people that fought in World War I. It focuses specifically on soldiers from Northeast Wisconsin.

"The technology and the sciene behind the military components were very new wave at the time," says interim director of the museum Beth Lemke.

This exhibit features pictures, artifacts, and oral histories from Wisconsin's WWI soldiers. It opens Saturday and will remain open until June 1st.
