ANDERSONVILLE, GA (WALB) -
Andersonville National Historic Site, home of the National Prisoner of War Museum, is pleased to announce the installation of Recent Acquisitions, a new temporary exhibit at the Prisoner of War Museum.
This exhibit features items donated to the museum collection by former POWs, their families, and others in recent years. The images and artifacts relate to the prisoner of war experience during the Civil War, World War II from the European and Pacific theaters, the Korean War, and the Vietnam War.
The objects on display were used for eating, recording daily activities, and personal items used by the prisoners during their captivity as well as items used to remember POWs. Among the artifacts on display for the first time are a knife made by Korean War POW William Borer, a pair of socks knitted by World War II POW Larry Dennis, and a poem by Vietnam War POW Theodore W. Triebel. These items help illustrate the complexities of the Prisoner of War experience.
Andersonville National Historic Site would like to thank the following contributors who made this exhibit possible: Donna Jo Woollen, William F. Borer, Mr. and Mrs. Richard Murphy, John H. Anderson, Paul F. Hannan, David G. Rawlings, Theodore W. Triebel, Lawerence J. Dwyer, Joseph Casano, Betty Cozens, Laurence Dennis, Rita Grenier, Muriel King, Virginia Niebrand, Faye Lowe, Marilyn Hodges, Robert W. Phillips, and Midway Village Museum. The exhibit opened September 27, 2012 and the public can view it through early February of 2013.
