February 04, 2018

Harpers Ferry, Jefferson


Learn about the contributions of Storer College students in World War I

On February 4, 2018 at 2 p.m., Harpers Ferry National Historical Park will recognize Black History Month with the opening of a special exhibit entitled Storer College Students in World War I. The exhibit will focus on the contributions made by the students and alumni who served in the Great War.

Mr. Algernon Ward, a member of the Ebony Doughboys, 93rd Infantry, World War I Reenactors, will be the featured speaker. Founded in 2014, the Ebony Doughboys are living historians committed to accurately portraying African American servicemen during World War I. Based on extensive research, group members share stories of the outstanding service provided by the original Doughboys during the “war to end all wars.”

The program will take place at the Mather Training Center, located at 51 Mather Place, Harpers Ferry, WV. For more information contact the Harpers Ferry National Historical Park Visitor Center at 304-535-6298.
