Long Island has been a crucial and often unsung actor in nearly every war in our nation’s history. Long Island at War will bring this fascinating past to life, exploring the region’s contributions to each major military engagement since the American Revolution. Generations of Long Island men and women have served and sacrificed for the country’s cause, and the region has been essential to the industrial supply, combat training, and coastal defense of the nation. Discover how this region’s role in U.S. military history has been vital, multifaceted and ever-present. The museum will offer complimentary admission to all active military personnel, veterans and their families for the duration of the exhibition.
