The Brazos County World War I Centennial Committee coordinated with the Carnegie Center for Brazos Valley History to showcase photographs of Living Legacies — the children of World War I veterans.  Exhibiting nine children, a niece and a nephew, each photograph features those individuals holding a photograph of their veteran.  Each person also shared a memory of their father or uncle, making the exhibit very personal to each individual featured.  With three Legacies in their nineties, we are reminded of how important it is to capture living history within our local communities.  It also demonstrates that there are millions of legacies from the First World War that are often overlooked, but are just as important.  A special thank you to each of the participants.
