May 26 – 30, 2016, Knox Museum hosted the Vietnam Combat Veterans’ The Moving Wall, a half-scale replica of Maya Lin’s original design located on the National Mall in Washington, DC.
The Moving Wall – the first of its kind in 1984 – has been touring the country for over 30 years, offering thousands who would never have the chance to get to Washington, DC, the opportunity to witness this important American monument.
This was its first appearance in Midcoast Maine.
We thank all of those that attended and paid their respects.
As Knox Museum is founded after one of America’s first soldiers, generals & combat veterans, the American military will always rank as our key players and serve as our greatest source of inspiration.
By nature, we engage and educate worldwide communities and classrooms to better understand, respect, honor and support our military veterans, past, present and future.
Knox Museum has been hard at work bringing together this very special upcoming Montpelier event to honor our military combat veterans and celebrate America’s liberty.
Stay tuned for the new and improved knoxmuseum.org online experience – coming soon!
Bringing The Moving Wall to Thomaston is a massive undertaking, requiring installation of a 252′ long platform, multiple tents, handicapped walkways, remote parking, shuttle service, 24-hour security, grief counselors, sanitary facilities, meals for volunteers, name-rubbing materials for schoolchildren, major publicity – the list goes on.
