Living historians to bring First World War to life at Relic Room
Re-enactors and history experts will be on hand to talk about Columbia's role in winning "Over There"
For the past year, the museum’s Malvina Gist Gallery has been dedicated to an exhibit called “A Century Past: The 30th Division on the Western Front, 1918.” Using artifacts from the Relic Room’s collections and loans from individuals and other institutions, the exhibition tells the story of the division from its formation in South Carolina through combat against veteran German forces on the Western Front along the French and Belgium borders. That exhibit closes on Sept. 30. A few days earlier – on Saturday, Sept. 21 – living historians will bring the period to life. The special program will feature re-enactors in uniform, and table displays of additional uniforms and equipment from the time and place.
