Reflections on World War I a century later, McKissick Museum

Objects from McKissick Museum’s permanent collection focused on the ethics, culture, and effects of World War I, encouraging audiences to think about how views of art, propaganda, and service rewards from the war have changed over time. Some objects show a national outlook on the war, while others reflect local perspectives of South Carolina citizens, including those attending the University of South Carolina or stationed at Camp Jackson (now Fort Jackson).  Featured are wartime items from university alumnus, George K. Way, who worked with the American Expeditionary Forces in France as an Army Chaplain and a collection of sheet museum supporting the troops.
