This citizen-soldier was so personally impacted that he continued charitable work with veterans for the rest of his life, resulting in the creation of a museum at Cantigny Park. Join us as Gayln Piper, Director of Programs and Education, shares the history of the First Division Museum from its creation in 1960.
