Patriotism, Pride and Anguish, on this Fourth of July

Sherman County eNews 4 July 2008

On this Fourth of July holiday, Patriotism, Pride and Anguish, a permanent exhibit at the Sherman County Historical Museum, is a poignant reminder of Sherman County's young men and women who served in the armed forces.
 
This exhibit currently displays photographs, uniforms, medals and gear representing the Civil War, Spanish American War, World War I, World War II, and the Korean and Vietnam Conflicts, and includes a West Point uniform. A public photo bulletin board commemorates those who served.
 
The Museum's interpretive exhibit, Oregon Trails, Rails and Roads in Sherman County, tells the story of Native Americans who lived here and the Oregon Trail emigrants who displaced them. Hands-on activities for youngsters provide opportunities to grind wheat, practice weighing objects, make muslin and crayon rubbings of rock art images, ride the wooden horse next to the tepee, and dress up in Oregon Trail pinafores and vests.
 
It's a great place to step back in history with your kids and their grandparents! Admission is $3 for adults, $1 for kids. The Museum is air conditioned and is open daily from 10 until 5. Contact the Museum at 541-565-3232.
