Artifacts Roadshow & ACEing Autism

RICHMOND, Va. --

The Virginia War Memorial’s Artifacts Roadshow

Whether it’s an old uniform, cap or helmet; a flag or a sword – every piece of military memorabilia has a unique story, what’s yours? You can learn more about a military-related item at a free expert review at the annual Artifacts Roadshow, Saturday, January 27 at the Virginia War Memorial in Richmond. From 10 a.m. to 12:30 p.m., Virginia War Memorial Curator Jesse Smith and noted military memorabilia experts Robert House and Warren Shindle will be on hand in the Paul and Phyllis Galanti Education Center to personally review and offer their insights on the origin and history of military items from any era – from the Revolutionary War, Civil War, World War I and II, Korea, Vietnam to today’s Global War on Terrorism. Admission to the Artifacts Roadshow is free as are the reviews. Donations to the non-profit Virginia War Memorial Foundation are appreciated. The Memorial is located at 621 South Belvidere Street.
