The 3rd infantry division
Museum at Ft Stewart in Hinesville is the destination of our
upcoming field trip on Saturday, November 5th. If you remember,
James Atwater, l the museum director, was LAHS July speaker.
What this museum has done, and will continue to do, is collect,
preserve and display historic artifacts, provide a place for
educational and historical programs, and support research and
The main gallery there
is dedicated to the history of the 3rd infantry division and
all its many artifacts and collections. The "Thunder Room
"gallery is about the assault into Bagdad by the 2nd Brigade
and contains video of the assault itself.
The 3rd and
4th galleries tell the history of Ft Stewart and
its supporting air fields such as Hunter Army Air Field.
