Military Might is back at Morgan Log House

Morgan Log House today.

  • Things To Do

Morgan Log House Historical Society is excited to bring back its annual Military Might on Saturday, July 20, 2024, from noon to 4 p.m. 

This year’s event looks at honoring the men and women who fought for our country, but also examines those who supported our heroes from home and overseas. We invite the community to explore the essential roles of the soldiers and the unsung heroes who supported them. 

This will range from medical teams to logistics experts and committed families. Immerse yourself through exhibits, talk with re-enactors, and recognize the importance of everyone during a war.

This day will kick off one of Morgan Log House’s initiatives leading to the 250th Anniversary of our Country in 2026. 

This initiative is part of the Library of Congress's Veteran History Project. The Veteran History Project was started to, “collect, preserve, and make accessible the firsthand recollections of U.S. military veterans who served in World War I through more recent conflicts and peacekeeping missions, so that future generations may hear directly from veterans and better understand what they saw, did and felt during their service.” 

Leading up to the 250th, Morgan Log House Historical Society is participating in this goal by assisting in collecting local veteran testimony. Kicking off the interviews will be Army Veteran and helicopter pilot Senator Tracy Pennycuick at Military Might.
