To commemorate the 100th anniversary of the United States’ entry into World War I, Onondaga Historical Association (OHA) is excited to present an exhibit on Onondaga County’s role in the Great War in the Murray-Sales Gallery at the Onondaga Historical Museum at 321 Montgomery Street in downtown Syracuse.

The exhibit features photographs, posters, uniforms, gas masks, helmets & other military accoutrements, war souvenirs, home-front conservation items, letters, diaries, and other archival material and objects. These items illustrate the impact World War I had on Onondaga County and the world at large. The exhibit focuses on the people, places, and events at home and abroad including military personnel and units, the nurse corps, Camp Syracuse, food conservation, the Split Rock munitions explosion, and the Spanish Influenza epidemic.
