“I am well and war is Hell”: Richmond During the World Wars
Nov 11, 2011 - Jan 14, 2013
Curated from all of the Valentine’s collecting areas, the exhibit tells the story of Richmond residents who fought both at home and abroad to advance the American cause. “I am well and war is Hell” explores the sacrifices made by Richmond residents, the role of women at home and in the service and the innovative ways people coped with life during wartime. This exhibit is the third in a series of exhibitions focused on 20th century history.
