99th traveling collection

The story behind the object

The From my Hometown to the Battlefield traveling exhibit explores the 99th Infantry Division’s incredible impact on the battle fronts during World War II. With the help of many artifacts (Uniforms, photos, equipment and other items) the personal aspect of the war is being displayed.

On this page you will find several previous expositions that we created and also the program for 2019 which marks the 75th Anniversary of the commencement of the Battle of the Bulge.

The exhibit will showcase the story behind the object from several 99th Infantry Division heroes:

  • Roy E. House
  • Harry W. Dyke

Every object has a story and it is our duty to record this story and pass it on to future generations.
