Force of Arms Exhibition

Force of Arms: Riverside’s Participation in American Wars
from 1861 - 2011

Exhibit Closed July 27, 2014

This exhibition reflects on the Civil War, World War I, and World War II through letters, photographs, documents, personal effects, and uniforms of Riverside residents and their ancestors. Through the letters of a Civil War Officer, one learns of a soldier’s experiences. A World War I wool jacket has
the insignia of a baker, who baked bread for the troops. World War II uniforms from the Army, Army Air Corps, and Navy were worn by Riverside men and women who served in the European and Pacific Theaters and on the home front.

Veterans - Share Their Story
In an effort to present what war is like from a soldier’s perspective, the Riverside Metropolitan Museum invited local veterans from all American Wars to tell their stories and share their photos as a part of its current exhibition, “Force of Arms: Riverside’s Participation in American Wars 1861-2011”. We were particularly interested in hearing from soldiers who are currently serving or who recently served in Iraq and/or Afghanistan but also welcomed veterans from any American conflict.
