ABOUT VETERANS DAY
Veterans Day originated as “Armistice Day” on Nov. 11, 1919, the first anniversary at the end of World War I. Congress passed a resolution in 1926 for an annual observance, and Nov. 11 became a national holiday beginning in 1938.
ABOUT THE MUSEUM
The American Freedom Museum on the campus of The Brook Hill School exists for three reasons: (1) to honor our veterans and active military and recognize the sacrifices they have made to secure our freedoms, (2) to educate this generation and future generations about our rich heritage, and (3) to inspire others to exemplify the courage and character as those featured in the Museum have done.
From the hills and valleys of the American Revolution to the sands of Iraq and Afghanistan, you will discover the journey of those in our nation’s military as they have heroically sacrificed to ensure the freedoms that we have today. The Museum showcases the “Hall of Presidents” which displays original signed documents from every U.S. President, from George Washington to Barack Obama.
The “Hall of Freedom” takes the museum visitor through fact-filled galleries showcasing military artifacts and chronicling every war from the Revolutionary War and the War of 1812, to World Wars I and II, the Holocaust, Vietnam War, Korean War, Cold War, War on Terror and more.
