Terrell Co. History Museum hosts WWII exhibit

DAWSON, GA (WALB) -

There's a new flag flying in Dawson.

"Were very proud of it. There's a plaque there that says it's to all to all the veterans of all wars. Past, present and future," said Kathy Hicks.

The Terrell County History museum held a flag dedication ceremony to honor veterans. A traveling World War Two exhibit was also in town.

"There are guns that you can actually touch and feel, reproduction of real guns, uniforms it just something that all the children in the area as well as the adults will really enjoy and benefit from seeing," said Hicks.

The ‘Over Here and Over There' traveling exhibit made its way to Dawson all the way from Dalton State College.

"It's very interesting. I missed WWII by a couple of years but have many friends that are. We also try to have something in our museum where people can stop by and look. We change the exhibits periodically," said Ed Duskin.

Ed Duskin served in the Korean and Vietnam War.

"It means to me its appreciation that we express and veterans express to their country and their country gain in small ways in exhibits like this for their military service," said Ed Duskin.

The traveling exhibit will be on display for the next two weeks. Monday through Saturday 10 am to 4pm and Sunday 1 pm to 4pm.
