    Black veterans in Knox County, Ohio

    Ric Sheffield Newbie

      People of color living in rural Ohio frequently find themselves left out when their small towns celebrate Veterans' Day.  This has been the case in Knox County, Ohio.  I'm looking for stories, artifacts, and photographs about or featuring Black men and women from Knox County, Ohio as well as other persons of color who served in the U.S. military from the civil war though the recent conflict in Afghanistan.  My students hope to construct a museum exhibit and collect oral histories of those still remaining.  The project will culminate in a presentation during local Veterans' Day events.
