BATON ROUGE, La. (BRPROUD) — A unique collection will be displayed at LSU Libraries.
The Veterans History Project is an archive that preserves veterans’ service in the military through oral history interviews and documents such as photographs, letters, journals, and diaries, according to Library of Congress Veterans. It was created for researchers and future generations to use to understand the realities of war.
The exhibit is held at the Library of Congress but selected items from the collection will be on display in Baton Rouge. People can attend an information session to learn how to preserve the stories of loved ones who are veterans and submit them for inclusion in the Library of Congress.
The event will be held from 10 a.m. to noon Saturday, Sept. 30 at the LSU’s Hill Memorial Library. Free parking will be provided in lots near the Indian Mounds and Peabody Hall on LSU’s campus.
The display and the informational session are free and open to the public.
