Portraits of Troup County: World War II
P ortraits of Troup County: World War II will be open just in time for Veteran’s Day, Wednesday, November 11th at Legacy Museum on Main.
Created by Isabelle Turner Knight, Bobby Cammon, and Terry Hoppe, all of the materials relate to men and women who served in World War II and were originally from the area, who later lived here, or have family living in the area.
This display is one of the most beloved exhibits Legacy Museum has hosted, but is different every time presented. This time, it concentrates on the faces of local men and women who were part of “The Greatest Generation.” Photographs from Honor Flights where local veterans visited the World War II Memorial in Washington, D. C. are also on display.
Legacy Museum on Main admission is free of charge. Normal operating hours are Monday through Friday, 9am to 5pm, and the first and third Saturdays of the month, 10am to 4pm.
The photographs from top of the page to the bottom are as follows: Corporal Grady Ware, Sergeant James Turner, and Lieutenant M.M. Trotter and Captain William Trotter with their sister Virginia.
