Brothers in Arms: Memories of the Great War

Ongoing exhibit

The exhibit, using firsthand accounts from letters and postcards sent home by Captain John Kean and his brother Congressmen Robert W. Kean, as well as photographs and personal objects, will allow visitors to walk in their footsteps as they were sent off to basic training in 1917, to fighting overseas on the front lines of Europe in 1917-18, to their return home in 1919. The collection at Liberty Hall Museum contains over 300 letters from John and Robert as well as their uniforms, military handbooks, maps, pictures, and commemorative pins, all of which are on display in the exhibit.
