World War I Memorial Museum
Did you know there was a World War I Memorial Museum in downtown Kansas City, Missouri? I visited there last week and it was really a great place to visit. I won't say "wonderful" for it told all about that horrible conflict (with some quite graphic movies and dioramas) but I certainly learned much about the "war to end all wars." As you enter, you see a field of 9000 orange silk poppies, one for every 1000 person who died in that conflict. Very sobering. How many Potter ancestors participated in this war? How many died? If you live near KC, a visit to this museum is one that I would recommend.
