Webinar – Gearing Up for War: Clothes and Tools of Medal of Honor Recipients
Join us for the next webinar in our CMOHS Archives series. In this broadcast, Archivist Laura Jowdy will talk about two crucial elements of the combat experience: clothing and equipment. How did the Recipients gear up for combat, and what did they take with them to get the job done? We will explore uniforms and equipment from different combat eras and geographic locations, and military branches. These objects will provide a jumping off point to discuss how the battle experience of Recipients has changed over time and varied by branch and location.
