A special exhibit presented by the Schuyler County Historical Society will mark the 50th anniversary of the end of the Vietnam War and honor county residents’ war involvement, both military and civilian.
The exhibit will open on January 27th, 2023, in the Gallery of the Brick Tavern Museum in Montour Falls. With community participation, the focus will be on the individuals who served.
The Paris Peace Accords that ended the prolonged war were signed on January 27tg, 1973. Two months later, on March 29th, the last American combat troops left South Vietnam.
The Historical Society is inviting county residents who served in the Vietnam War, or their families, to help create the special exhibit by providing information such as where the person served and what he or she did after the war. Exhibit organizers also are asking for a photograph to go with the information. All submissions for the exhibit will be placed in the Society’s permanent collections.
The participation form can be filled out online at the Historical Society’s website www.schuylerhistory.org. To request a printed copy of the form or for more details about the exhibit and how to participate, call (607) 535-9741 or email [email protected].
The form must be returned to the Historical Society by December 20th.
