'Honor and Valor' at the Visalia Library

Tulare County Library and the Annie R. Mitchell History Room remembers and honors the centennial of the end of World War I, also known as Armistice Day, with a historic photo exhibit from November 6 through November 30 at the Visalia Branch Library. The exhibit “Honor and Valor” features curated historic photos from the Annie R. Mitchell History Room, many from the George W. Stewart collection and feature Tulare County residents who were drafted to fight in the war. Interspersed with the photos are quotations about World War I from authors such as George Santayana and John McCrae, providing context to the war’s effect on this nation and county.
