The NC Museum of History is hosting an exhibit related to WW1 on its third floor- yesterday was opening day. Manned tables were set up outside with artifacts from the war- gas masks, backpacks, crosses, helmets with bullet holes in them all attesting to the atrocities of war. A scaled down visual of the trenches is on display showing how the Allied Forces hunkered down into the earth to combat the Central Powers. One can only imagine the suffering people entailed during this 4+ year war. Lack of access to medical care brought out the healing instinct in some people, the spiritual prayerful attempts to bring comfort. The exhibit is a moving reminder that war is hell.
