Cowboys in Khaki

Date/Time

Feb 15, 2019 to May 12, 2019
10:00 AM until 05:00 PM

Description

Men and women from across the American West played critical roles — both “over there” and on the home front — in helping the Allies win World War I. The American Expeditionary Force (AEF) divisions drawn from the Western states provided crucial support at a precarious time (from September to November 1918) to turn the war’s tide. Opening November 17, the National Cowboy & Western Heritage Museum presents the exhibition Cowboys in Khaki: Westerners in the Great War to tell the Westerners who, before the war, were cowboys and cattlemen, farmers, roughnecks, doctors, lawyers, and shopkeepers.

Cowboys in Khaki: Westerners in the Great War draws on the National Cowboy Museum’s militaria, rodeo, and history collections, as well as loans from the 45th Infantry Division Museum in Oklahoma City and the Panhandle-Plains Historical Museum in Canyon, Texas. It tells how those from the Western United States made decisive contributions to the war effort, both on the home front and abroad.
