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 – May 31, 2020 in the Wylie Gallery.
In conjunction with the seventh annual Truce Tournament commemorating the Christmas Truce in World War I, the National WWI Museum and Memorial hosts a free British pub-themed English Premier League Boxing Day Watch Party inside the Museum.
