Exceeding Expectations: Staunton, Augusta County and World War I
Exactly 100 years ago this year, the first war ever to engulf most of the world came to an end. World War I had been a horrible and costly war, both in young lives and in resources. Those costs were particularly memorable in Staunton and Augusta County, the birthplace of the wartime president, Woodrow Wilson.

The Augusta County Historical Society will remember the area’s sacrifices during “The Great War” with a special traveling exhibit at the Wayne Theatre Exhibit Gallery. The exhibit is open to the public without charge.

Although America’s participation in the war was brief compared to other conflicts, it had a dramatic impact on the Valley. Over a thousand young men from the area served in the army. Some died in battle, some were wounded or gassed but others returned with honors to live out their lives back in the Valley. Many more local citizens supported the war effort by raising money and collecting materials and food through organizations such as the Red Cross, YMCA, Boy Scouts, Liberty Loan drives and the local military academies.

This is a traveling exhibit on loan from the Augusta County Historical Society. Curators are Rick Chittum and Rick Potter.
