“Victory from Within: The American Prisoner of War Experience”

Fri, Aug 26, 2016 – Sat, Jan 21, 2017

Beginning on Friday, August 26th, The National Civil War Naval Museum is offering museumgoers a peak into the prisoner of war story. The museum will be a host site of “Victory from Within: The American Prisoner of War Experience,” a national traveling exhibition developed with partners of the Andersonville National Historic Site in Georgia. The 1,200 square foot exhibit, based thematically on the National Prisoner of War Museum in Andersonville, is designed to educate the public about the stories and sacrifices of American POWs. The four main sections of the exhibit - Capture, Prison Life, Those Who Wait, and Freedom - contain artifacts as well as interactive elements such as audio-visual interviews with prisoners of war. Visitors will be able to explore the POW experience throughout the entire history of American military conflict, from the Civil War to modern conflicts. In addition to the exhibit, the National Park Service has developed a curriculum for students based on the exhibit in an effort to further bring the stories of prisoners of war to the community. Our latest traveling exhibit, "Victory From Within: The American Prisoner of War Experience" will be on display until mid-January 2017.
