Battle of Craney Island Exhibit

As a final follow up to the 200th commemoration of the Battle of Craney Island, we've posted the three panels that made up the traveling exhibit that museum staff have taken to different regional events.  The panel discuss the participants in the battle, the battle itself, the future of Craney Island, and interesting little pieces of trivia (like why Craney Island is called Craney Island?).Click to enlarge each panel.

We would like to thank the Royal Marine Museum, the National Maritime Museum, the Norfolk District of the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, and the Society for the War of 1812 in Virginia for their assistance with this exhibit.
