This temporary exhibition sheds a light on the presence of the four American divisions that fought in Flanders during the final offensive. The military aspect unfolds as we examine the education, origin, equipment and uniforms of these troops. Also featured is a general story about “Legergroep Vlaanderen” (the Flanders Battalion), which recounts how the Belgian troops liberated Zonnebeke. The exhibition starts with an opening weekend on April 21st and 22nd, which focuses on the final attack and the participation of American troops. The programme features numerous themed activities, such as battlefield tours and the annual Living History event.
