DULUTH -- In time for the Independence Day holiday, leaders at the Duluth History Museum have expanded the museum's military exhibit.
The museum, located at the historic Strickland House along Buford Highway, now has 11 uniforms as well as pictures and plaques from wars in the last century.
"We have a unique blend from World War I to our current conflicts," said Judy Wilson, the president of the historical society. "The names will be familiar to many of you as they are all Duluth residents or their family members. Each uniform has a name and picture to go with it so you can visualize them while they so proudly served our country."
The exhibit also includes pictures and plaques loaned from the local Post 251 of the American Legion.
In addition to the Strickland House exhibit, which is open from noon to 3 p.m. Fridays and Saturdays, at a price of $1 for children and $3 for adults, the museum is offering a companion exhibit at Duluth City Hall in the glass cases adjacent to the council chambers.
"Come and be inspired and proud of our military men and women," Wilson said.
