  • The Carnegie Museum of Montgomery County, 222 S. Washington St, Crawfordsville, is playing host to “The Great War: From Ration Lines to the Front Lines,” one of the Indiana Historical Society’s (IHS's) traveling exhibits, now through June 4.
    “The reasons we wanted this exhibit now are that it fits in with our centennial celebrations,” Kat Burkhart, curator at the Carnegie Museum said. “It is basically 100 years from World War I—WWI gets less attention than WWI, so this is drawing a little bit of attention to the first World War. Also, it fits with the military exhibit here.”
