Red Deer and The Great War 1914 "Let's Go Boys"

Nov 8th, 2014 - Feb 8th, 2015

Red Deer and The Great War – 1914
“Let’s Go Boys”

Following the assassination of Archduke Franz Ferdinand, Austria declared war on Serbia on July 28, 1914. Great Britain, including Canada, allied with Serbia, Russia, Belgium and France against the German and the Austro-Hungarian Empires. Canada was at war. 

One hundred years after the start of The Great War we remember and mark this anniversary.
The names on scrolls, engraved in marble, set in bronze, and in newspaper clippings, affected families’ lives forever.

“Let’s Go Boys” tells stories and features artifacts about how Red Deer and Central Alberta citizens responded to the heroic and tragic event. They lived where we now live. How we live is due much to their sacrifices.

The community is invited to attend the opening on Tuesday, November 11 from Noon to 4:30 pm. Free admission.
