Poised for the sesquicentennial remembrance of the Civil War, South Carolina and the Civil War brings together eyewitness views and accounts of this period of American history, selected from the rich holdings of University of South Carolina Libraries.
The posters in this digital collection represent only one small part of the Joseph M. Bruccoli Great War Collection at the University of South Carolina. The Collection was established in 1997 by Matthew J. and Arlyn Bruccoli in memory of Joseph M. Bruccoli, Matthew J. Bruccoli’s father, who fought in the first World War.
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.
This World War I soldier’s sketchbook is the mark of Cpl. Douglas G. Ward, an otherwise unknown British soldier-artist.
