Current Exhibit

100 Years of Veterans Day

The Metro Archives will have a display honoring the 100th anniversary of Armistice Day, which later became known as Veterans Day. The exhibit will include materials commemorating the veterans of World War I up to the War on Terror, with special emphasis on Nashvillians who served in the military.

We will have the display in the West Reading Room on the third floor of the Nashville Public Library (Main Branch Library). The exhibit will open on Thursday, November 8, 2018, and it will run until Thursday, January 3, 2019.
