The First World War and Knoxville: Through the Eyes of Harry Moreland

March 30, 2016–July 7, 2016

This mini exhibition explores the First World War through the personal military memorabilia of Moreland (1899–1969), a Knoxvillian and University of Tennessee Law School alum (1922).

Moreland enlisted with the 117th Infantry and deployed to the Western Front shortly after the United States entered the war on April 2, 1917.

The mini-exhibition, mounted in honor of the 99th anniversary of the US entry into the war, sheds light on how the “Great War” affected so many, including those right here in Knoxville and at UT.
