The opening reception for the World War II Through the Soldier’s Camera exhibit will be Sept. 18

The public is invited to attend the opening reception for “World War II Through the Soldier’s Camera” exhibit on Tuesday, Sept. 18, from 5-7 p.m. at the 6th Cavalry Museum.

This exhibit features the wartime photography of Chattanoogan Hubert “Hubo” Fisher who was inducted at Fort Oglethorpe. Mr. Fisher served in the Army Air Corps in the South Pacific. 

The 20 panel display gives a rare look at soldiers, camp life, USO performances and devastation of war as photographed by the soldiers themselves. Fortunately the family digitally saved the vast photo collection as the originals were lost two years later in a house fire. 

Mr. Fisher’s grandson, Brent Templeton, partnered with the museum for this first exhibit produced by the museum as a traveling exhibit perfect for small museums that lack the budget to afford military exhibits offered by national companies. 

Funding for this exhibit is provided by the Tucker Foundation and Georgia Council for the Arts.  For more information or to schedule a group tour call 706-861-2860 or visit www.6thcavalrymuseum.org
