Exhibit marks centennial of US entry into World War I

    The Bedford Museum opened an exhibit this month that marks the centennial of America’s entry into World War I. The United States declared war on the German Empire, and its allies, on April 6, 1917.

    Grace Peterson, the Museum’s archivist and business manager, arranged the display, selecting items loaned to the Museum by Lee Anthony. Peterson said the greatest difficulty in setting up the exhibit was deciding what not to put in the limited space she had to work with.
