More than 40 years after its conclusion, the Vietnam War remains one of the most controversial events of the 20th century. How did the conflict begin? Why did it begin? What are the connections between the war and its confounding cousin, World War I? This exhibition explores themes of patriotism, duty and citizenship through a remarkable collection of objects from the New‑York Historical Society. Open Nov. 8, 2019 – July 26, 2020 in the Wylie Gallery.
The National WWI Museum and Memorial began collecting directly after the First World War in 1920 and has amassed the most comprehensive Great War collection in the world. 100 Years of Collecting provides a window into this collection of incredibly diverse objects and documents.
