With displays from the Civil War, World War I, World War II, Korean War, Vietnam War, Gulf Wars and the current Global War on Terrorism, our Military Gallery honors local men and women who have bravely served our country for their service and heroism. Among the uniforms, battlefield relics, and extensive gun collection are stories of men and women that you won’t find in the history books. Here, you’ll learn about Cobb Count’s most decorated World War I veteran, the African American experience in Marietta during the Civil War, a woman who enlisted in the Women’s Army Air Corps in 1942 and retired at Lt. Colonel in 1975, among many others.
