Centennial Saturdays: Go on Expedition with the AEF

Saturday, August 19
11:00 am–4:00 pm
New-York Historical Society
70 Central Park West at 77th Street

Meet U.S. soldiers from the American Expeditionary Forces, also known as the AEF. Portrayed by Living Historians, the troops will share stories about early 20th-century life on and off the battlefield. Try on an army helmet, or ‘tin hat,’ on your own head, dig into military tools and equipment, and inspect the soldiers’ uniforms from the top of their hooked wool collars all the way down to their special leggings for time in the trenches. Part of a weekly series in conjunction with exhibition World War One: Beyond the Trenches.

Free with museum admission ($20, $6/ages 5-13, free/ages 4 & under
