New Intern Exhibit, April, 2015

Sara Halpert Exhibit

Sara Halpert Exhibit

The National Guard Memorial Museum revealed its newest temporary exhibit. Titled “Shot at Sunrise, Gassed at Night: The National Guard in WWI”, the exhibit features never before seen pieces of the museum’s collection pertaining to World War I. The objects represent the two most defining features of World War I, trench warfare and gas attacks.

Some objects on display include:
• Gaiters, WWI

Trench foot was a common affliction caused by prolonged exposure of the feet to damp/cold conditions. The effects of trench foot range from slight numbness to severe gangrene requiring amputation. To keep their feet dry, soldiers wore gaiters (protective leggings) to keep mud and snow from entering the top of their boots.

• Letter from 2nd Lieutenant William Lander (1918)

In this letter home, William Lander, 2nd Lieutenant of the 107th Infantry Unit, writes how the Germans (“Jerry’s”) are “beginning to cry that gas and aerial raids are barbarous” and that on his last tour they “threw everything but the trench” at the Germans.

• “The Gas Attack” Newspaper

In 1916 New York’s National Guard was stationed on the Mexican border. When WWI broke out they became New York’s 27th Infantry Division and changed the name of their training camp newspaper from The Rio Grande Rattler to the more topical The Gas Attack.
This exhibit was written and designed by the museum’s spring 2015 intern, Sara Halpert. Sara will graduate with her Masters degree in Museum Studies from George Washington University next month. She aspires to be a museum curator and is currently working as a Museum Assistant at the Sewall-Belmont House and Museum while looking for a full-time curatorial position. She is very grateful for the experiences and opportunities she received while interning at the National Guard Memorial Museum.

 

 

Noteworthy Donations

 

Sample of Field Manuals

Sample of Field Manuals

On December 4, 2014, Mr. Mike Waite donated 30 Field Manuals from the 1940s to the National Guard Memorial Archives.  Used by an Indiana National Guardsman, the manuals are Federally published and distributed.  They are a testament to the endurance of the Dick Act, 1903, ensuring that the National Guard soldier would be trained and equipped right along side his Federal counterpart.  28 of the manuals are 7″ by 4″ and apply such subjects as “Engineer Soldier’s Handbook”, “Military Police”, “Motor Transport”, “Protective Measures, Individuals and Small Units”, and “Military Sanitation.”  Two others are hardbound and entitled, “Infantry Drill Regulations” and “The State Defense Force Manual”.  These volumes are in pristine condition and are available to the public for research and reading.
