The Sons of Liberty represented groups of patriots in the American Revolution. Throughout the history of the United States there have been sons and daughters that continued this tradition; they are those that served in the military. The Sons of Liberty Museum is "saving military history one soldier at a time" (sm) honoring and providing education including STEM-HGL programs as we tell the story of the service of these 'Sons'.
With an expansive collection of military artifacts dating from the Civil War to the present day conflicts we can tailor programs to meet the interest of each audience. Uniforms, gear, weapons, medals, ribbons, photos, scrapbooks, periodicals, papers and battlefield relics preserve rich historical stories. This collection continues to grow and we welcome donations from all branches of service, Army, Army Air Corps, Air Force, Navy, Marine Corps and including the Coast Guard, Merchant Marine and the new Space Force. We also house artifacts from the service academies, military schools and persons who worked on the homefront during wartime.
In this day we also devote resources to the digital side of our organization where we have amassed over 250,000 web pages of material. This includes histories and an honor roll. With a strategic partner the MIARN we have published material on our citizen soldiers still listed as Missing in Action.
The training of personnel and usage of military functions have their roots in geography, math and science and we are generating programs containing these foundational disciplines and these are portrayed in the resultant service of the individual.
Exhibits and equipment are props that aid in the storytelling of this melding of history and personal service.
