Utah State University Bringing War Home Roadshow Events are here! Be sure to check out the first two locations which will be here in Cache Valley on April 9th from 10am-12pm at the Eccles Conference Center on campus and from 1pm-3pm at the Hyrum City Museum.

Many of us are familiar with wartime souvenirs, whether we have direct experience with the battlefield or not. Some of these objects are personal, a way for veterans to preserve their experiences. Often, we treasure objects from our relatives who have participated in the wars of the 20th century; special things linger on as memorials that help our families tell the stories of how beloved fathers, grandfathers, mothers and grandmothers, cousins, and siblings contributed to the larger history of war. Through a National Endowment for the Humanities sponsored program led by two Utah State University faculty from history and anthropology, the “Bringing War Home” project invites the community–military and civilian alike–to connect with the history of war through sharing wartime objects and the personal stories that surround them.
