American Legion gets new home, new name

Wednesday, November 1, 2017 by ED PANY Curator, Atlas Cement Company Memorial Museum in Columns

The American Legion was incorporated by an act of Congress in 1919. Its purpose was to foster Americanism, uphold the Constitution, preserve the memories of the World War I veterans and promote good citizenship — worthy goals indeed!
