100th Anniversary of World War I
Wednesday and Saturday
Mark your calendars for August 15-19th, and join us for the 100th anniversary of World War I at the Fort Miles Museum! Fort Miles will be hosting the World War I Mobile Museum, which will feature exhibits on WWI uniforms, personal items, and the story of Ernest Loucks, a locomotive engineer said to have “pulled” more men across France than any other engineer in the war. Guest speakers from the Zwaanendael Museum and the Hagley Museum along with local author Bill Manthorpe will join us to discuss various topics of WWI and local history of the time.
This is a free event with paid entrance into the park. There will also be guided tours of the WWII Battery 519 for $5 a person. For more information call 302-644-5007. Learn more!
