Open through August 27, 2017

From the Seminole Wars in the early 1800s to the Civil War and the two World Wars in the 20th Century, Florida has had a role in many of the conflicts on this continent. The MOAS collection contains art, artifacts, graphics, and other items related to this unique aspect of Florida history and, together with objects from other Florida institutions, this exhibition brings this story to light. Tracing 200 years of military history of the state provides a view into its rapid growth from early southern outpost to integral player in the country's worldwide conflicts.
