Overview

New Hall Military Museum has two floors of exhibits commemorating the Army, Navy and Marines in early American history. A permanent display called "Marines in the Revolution" documents the role of leathernecks from the years 1775-1781. Also in the collection, a scale model of the man-of-war Raleigh merits inspection. It was the first ship to hoist "Old Glory"(the American flag) in battle. Six other scale models of frigates (including the USS Constitution) are also on display. The Army exhibit contains sabers, muskets and uniforms from the Colonial Era. Other displays educate visitors about the plight of the common solder and military tactics of the time. Guided tours and multi-media information is also available.
