New display. Veterans Wall of Appreciation



In celebration of 238 years of independence and in honor of the Founding Fathers who fought for that independence and to our Veterans who have preserved it for us all. The Bessemer Hall of History Museum wishes to celebrate Independence Day... by recognizing your family members, who served in the United States Armed Forces, by placing a card in honor or in memory on the wall of appreciation. This display will be up for the entire month of July to give everyone a chance to show appreciation to as many as possible. Come by the museum to add a name or to read the names and show appreciation during this celebration of Americas' Independence.
