NEWPORT NEWS — The Mariners’ Museum is known for its ancient ship artifacts but this weekend it will serve as site for extensive information on World War I.
The Museum will host its World War I symposium from 1 p.m. until 4 p.m. on June 23.
The event is free with admission to the museum and registration is not required but encouraged so the museum can plan accordingly.
Three panelists will discuss how the war changed the way ships were built, neighborhoods were constructed and how populations shifted.
Craig Symonds from the U.S. Naval War College, Al Barnes from the Virginia National Guard and Lynn Rainville author of Virginia and the Great War: Mobilization, Supply and Combat, 1914-1919, will serve as panelists.
