Kimberly Guise presents Stars, Stripes, and Souvenirs: Flags from the Collection of The National WWII Museum
The National WWII Museum's collection contains hundreds of flags. Some of these are on display, including the flag that flew aboard the USS Bayfield during the invasion of Iwo Jima; the handmade American flag sewn by French teenagers in the summer of 1944 in preparation for the liberation of France; and the flag presented to the family of Murray M. Blum, a merchant seaman killed in the northeast Atlantic after jumping overboard to attempt to save another sailor. The Museum also has an extensive variety of Axis flags, captured and brought home by American forces. Join us for a special Dinner with a Curator as Assistant Director for Curatorial Services Kimberly Guise discusses this diverse collection.
Dinner with a Curator is an evening of dinner and history hosted by The American Sector Restaurant + Bar culinary team and The National WWII Museum professionals. Guests participate in discussion on a featured topic related to World War II which is interpreted through the Museum's collection and a theme-inspired four-course dinner paired with beverage specials.
