World War I and the Athens Armory



Capt. Cyrus Moore III was commander of the Athens boys

And he got them together, in uniform, for the dedication of a plaque in 2018 at the Athens Armory, at the top of Court Street. When he's not winning World War I, he's an expert at the Southeast Ohio History Center.

A picture that could have been made 100 years ago


In the old pictures they look somber . . .

. . . but these guys were perfectly cheerful -- I think it's the sepia tone that made them look oh so serious way back when.

Looks ancient, doesn't it . . .

. . . but the picture was made 19 May 2018.

There were nurses in World War I, too.
