I would start with a local museum. The curator will probably be able to get you connected with conservators… Good luck! — 1914-1918 War (@WW1TheGreatWar) January 28, 2018 @CraigBrownOhio @smithsonian @HistoPresDotCom @ArtPreserveGrp I would start with a local museum.

This Project
Charting the daily events of World War One, this history project aims to provide a bite-sized and engaging way to follow the events of 100 years ago. Using a variety of sources, I aim to refer to the main events of the war on the centenary of their occurrence. However, it's not just about the main events, I have also taken time to research lesser known events in order to help the reader to feel engaged with the scope of the war.
