Help us tell the story of Fort Des Moines!  In order to refresh our exhibits and programs, we continue to seek information, artifacts, photos, oral histories—any number of items associated with the history of Fort Des Moines.   We would like to record soldier stories and show viewers examples from the past.

Some examples include:

  • cavalry uniforms and gear, photos, postcards, service records.
  • World War I uniforms and weapons black soldiers may have typically worn or used, unit patches, letters, photos, service records.
  • Women’s Army Corps uniforms and related equipment, and souvenirs of service, scrapbooks, diaries, letters, photos, and other service information.

We will acknowledge all donations that go on display.  Also, donations are tax deductible.
